Fellow Lug'er Hams - Blame it on Peter for mentioning having worked 
Christmas Island.  Not to prolong this OT discussion unnecessarily, 
but one of the funniest things I ever read on the LUG was the mention 
of "real glass:" 813's, 6L6's, 6SN7's etc., a year or so ago.

I was first licensed in 1968, too, and built most of my own gear. 
Even had a few articles published in 73 and QST.  Ah, *those* were 
the days: nasty finger burns from those hot tubes, and gear that 
might actually kill you if you made a wrong move.  ;-)  I still have 
soldering iron scars on my fingers.

The LUG reminds me of nothing so much as ham radio with typing and, 
of course, the "Band" is always open world-wide.  Great fun, all 
around. :-))
