My name is Khalid Parvez. I am 60 years. I am a Radio Amateur and my call is ap2kd. I live in Lahore, Pakistan. I am a Telecommunication Engineer worked in Pakistan Railways as Chief Engineer Telecommunication. Radio is my hobby and it started when my father who was working in Military Engineering Services, brought a militery radio , now I know it was AEW1NZ. It was an Army Entertainment radio but very good construction all metal. My elder brother use to tunne it and I used to watch it , at the age of 7 years in 1959. This started me interest in Radios. Now I have number of radio sets old and present day. I like military radios for their rigid mechanical design, precise circuit design and above all honest construction. When I was 7 years old, I saw a PRC-6 that inspired me alot. Now I do have a few of PRC-6s after 40 year when I saw this militery walkie-talkie set in working condition. I also like TMC of USA, Collins, Racal, Marconi, especially Atalanta-2207C. I have some plastic radios also like ICF-2001D, ICF-2001, ICF-7600D, AOR AR-8000, etc etc.
