Thanks again, Tracy!

1 .Only NASA, perhaps a few telephone companies and COMSAT had dish antennas to communicate with satelites.
2. You remember watching Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walking on the moon live. (1969)
3. You protested at Stonewall.
4. The biggest commercial jet was a super DC-8; you remember reading in the paper the day the 747 did its maiden flight.
5. The worst space flight disaster was the Apollo Fire (1967).
6. Your Stereo Preamp used 12AX7 and 12AU7 tubes as the active devices;meanwhile your power amp had a vacuum tube rectifier such as a 5R4GYB or 5U4GB for the power supply and used 6L6GC, 6550, or 7027 output
tubes connected to a chicago standard ultralinear output transformer.
7. Only portable transistor radios were "instant on."
8. You remember when only women wore girdles.
9. You could get locked up in jail if you were caught with your best "friend" if you know what I mean.
10. You remember watching Star Trek on NBC.
11. The first computer you used was the ENIAC.
