Welcome Tom! I’m right down the road in Bricktown. Knowing your background with VHF and SSB I may need to call on you to help when we have a problem with those installed on our fishing boats!! (I wouldn’t do that, retirement should be enjoyed!)
It’s nice to see another enthusiast in the general area (and even closer than I am to the museum!)
My main interest is Apple IIs through the early compact Macs/Mac II machines so any questions, items you’re looking for or help with machines don’t hesitate to ask!
