Lihue FSS (LIH), Kauai, Hawaii.  Inflight, 1963.  
Ervin Dworzack, charter member of "The Society of Airways Pioneers," one-time 
barnstormer, and ham radio operator since 1923, likes to reminisce about the old days 
when a radio operator had to be self-sufficient.  There were no systems maintenance 
personnel, electronic maintenance technicians, or even a radio repair man to consult 
when the equipment broke down.  Some of his duties included helping the mail plane 
pilot shovel snow, and occasionally he helped unload mail for delivery via rail when the 
mail plane couldn't get through because of weather.
