In amateur radio parlance, an 'old-timer' is someone who's been involved in the hobby for a quarter century. Back when I still had a current licence, the old-timers were the WW2 generation, they'd sit on 80 metres and talk about their allotments or the war. They were, to my young eyes, impossibly old.
So it is with some distress that I note my near quarter century since passing my licence examination.
Better an OM if not a YL than an SK I guess.
