      In the ealy 1940's, Wayne and Mary Eller operated a rooming house in Washington. About this time, Wayne Eller became interested in Amateur radio (Ham radio) primarily to contact his son Temple who was in the army in Puerto Rico. Wayne Eller was an avid camper and outdoorsman. He frequently took his family on camping and canoe trips along the James and Appamattox Rivers and into the Great Dismal Swamp. He even wrote a column for the "Petersburg Progress Index" on the best places to canoe.
