I know it took almost 3 months to get my novice license in the mail back in 1979 ;)

What about waiting for your ham license from the FCC? IN 1960 it took about six weeks, and there was no internet to look it up early.

So glad somebody remembers all those marketing gimmicks of Howdy Doody and Captain Video days. My grandson doesn't even know the difference between an and and an or gate. Perish the thought of knowing what a transistor does.

Y'all are all so spoiled.
I remember ordering from the back of comic books and cereal boxes and having to wait "allow 6-8 weeks for delivery" for my "Amazing X-Ray Glasses" or "Secret Decoder Ring".
No email, no tracking numbers. Just endless faith and optimism.
And that was just from Kalamazoo or Battle Creek Michigan.
If you got it at all you were amazed!
