Passed my General exam

Postby Mountain » Sun Feb 26, 2017 7:13 am

I passed my General Ham radio exam yesterday. Being a tech was good, but the General licence gives me so much more to work with. The local Hams in Elizabethton, Tn put on a study session all day, and then administered the exams. There must have been 10 VE's helping with the test. They are a very supportive, and obviously caring group. It takes a lot of time and effort to do this, and I for one appreciate their efforts.

BZ's chief!
I passed mine last Wednesday. Waiting for my powder to build up a little to order a HF rig.

Congrats. I'm studying for mine as well and test is in a couple of weeks. Thinking of a Yeasu FT 817 or 857D. Antennas will be the problem due to wife and wires etc. Need something really stealthy.

Good luck on the Exam. I also like that 857D. I like the Yaesu stuff so far.
