    Just to be picky; that’s KNGMTQ.

    This is definitely not true. I know of a radio-ham that’s even younger. He was born in 1961 therefore when this issue came out he was -5 years young.

    To be even pickier, the call would have been KN6MTQ, the G in the original piece had to have been a typo as ham calls would have a number designating the district. 6 would be California. The N in the call represents “novice” and if the kid successfully upgraded, the call would have become K6MTQ

    Just sayin’

    The callsign is KN6MTQ. It is a ’6′, not a ‘G’.

    Not true. Guy Mitchell, of Buckingham, IA, received his ham radio license at the age of 5 yrs., 2 months in 1977. Check “Now You’re Talking!”

    My local VE Team had these two 4-yr olds… incredible! They were home schooled and filled out the Form 605 by themselves!
