I just passed my Technician Class Element 2 test this morning. Does that make me a hamster?

Do you have a call sign yet, or do you have to wait for the on-line posting at the FCC ?

Let us know so we can add you to the OAUSA Amateur Operator Roster.... :D

Only when you have depleted the checking account buying all the gear you will now need. But seriously, great job and congratulations.

Thanks much, guys!! I'm already planning out my 2nd transceiver. My first was the dual band Yaesu VX-6R from sdnative / Eric that I've been lurking and learning with.

I endured the dreaded Gordo to learn "the exciting world of ham radio".

My son may learn it as part of camping and wheeling, but that ice water isn't quite South enough yet...

Thanks again,

Jay
