Q & A WITH SCOTTY AND SAMPSON

Question: Are you guys Amish? 

Answer: Ha, ha or LOL as the kids say! On a serious note, we were raised in the Amish tradition until our sixteenth year when we discovered Rumspringa, the tradition of “running around.” It was then we discovered our passion for ham radio. We’ve been ham radio enthusiasts ever since and thus had to leave our beloved Amish tradition behind.
