it has been added to our queue of things we want to do long term. Right now, with a show of his coming up (and the attendant expensese of printing, matting, and framing) and a major car repair bill this week, getting a HAM radio isn’t going to happen real soon!

How I did it: Nine weeks ago, I was browsing some radio websites and discovered that a ham radio license was a lot easier to get than I'd thought. I decided to go for a childhood dream, and study for the Technician test.
I went to the American Radio Relay League website, and they had lots of resources. One site they recommended had all the study materials online for a very reasonable fee.
I'd never "had time" for this before, but I made time. I am glad I did!
Recently my new "Call Sign" showed up in the FCC data base, so now I'm official! Now you can call em K6RAV. Read how I did it… 23 months ago
Sometimes things do not go as planned. I am going to have to put off the test, because of some funeral plans.
Not the end of the world, far from it. I just do not want to forget about this—glad that 43T will help me remember it! 23 months ago
My test is scheduled for June 14, and I’ve completed the materials for the Technician exam. I’m moving on into the General Exam materials; we’ll see if I can pass that one too.
This is fun. 1 year ago
and I never really thought about it, until I read Adar’s posts. I should give it a try!
