I took my first test for my Ham license back in May, I was ready to test for General at the same time but due to a schedule conflict there wasn’t enough time.

Of, course last month some other crisis came up and I missed the test date because of family requirements.

Today was the monthly test, no conflicts, was there reading and waiting to go. Missed 3 of 35, passed with 91+%.


Will go online later to order the star for my lapel Wink

Here is a site to use for taking practice tests. It will show you what areas you might need to study to increase your score.

Make sure all you guys stay caught up on your renewals. I didn't when I was going through my divorce. I held an extra class license and it expired. By the time I discovered that it was too late. So I'm no longer a ham.


I'm not completely useless. I can be used as a bad example.

I believe there is now a provision where you can take a Technician test and be reinstated to Extra.... something like that.

Luckily, I have enough willpower to control the driving ambition that rages within me.

When you had the votes, we did things your way. Now, we have the votes and you will be doing things our way. This lesson in political reality from Lyndon B. Johnson

"Some things are apparent. Where government moves in, community retreats, civil society disintegrates and our ability to control our own destiny atrophies. The result is: families under siege; war in the streets; unapologetic expropriation of property; the precipitous decline of the rule of law; the rapid rise of corruption; the loss of civility and the triumph of deceit. The result is a debased, debauched culture which finds moral depravity entertaining and virtue contemptible." - Justice Janice Rogers Brown

Congratulations and 73.
