That's right, I just passed my General. :wave:

Went a lot better now that I had studied the material.

I was asked if I wanted to write the Extra, but not having looked at the material yet....I decided that I wouldn't bother. But, now I might see about getting the study material and seeing if I can get it. )-o

I'm a Ham Again.

Today, I wrote the test to become a Ham again. I first wrote the Technican, which I passed....I think I got one wrong in the end. I then tried to write the General, which I missed by 2 questions.

I had skimmed the material for the Technican, and done some practice tests I expected to pass this one. I hadn't read the material for General, and failed the one practice test I had take online (also missed it by 2).

I was largely winging the General based on the fact that I had both my Basic and Advanced qualifications in Canada...and that I'm an EE. But, it has been many, many years since I got my EE or my Advanced qualifications. And, I hadn't used either in a very long time. I've been living in the United States since 1998, and had cut back on Ham activities after working the flood in June 1995 in Medicine Hat. I only did one or two public service events since that. Or doing packet radio.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
