WASHINGTON COUNTY - When Fran Little was 12 years old, he bought a crystal radio set kit, put it together and hooked it up to an antenna. "I actually heard local radio amateurs on the air and then went to their homes and talked with them," Little said, remembering the thrill as if it were yesterday. Little is a member of the Antietam Radio Association , which meets twice a month at Hagerstown Regional Airport. Not only is it a great hobby for young people, Little said his experience is an example of how it can become a lifelong vocation.
