How many of you are hams?

Post by hornhospital » Tue Aug 13, 2019 7:06 am

No, not the entertainer kind, the amateur radio operator kind.

I'm studying for my Ham "ticket" (license), something I should have done 50 years ago, but having to send and copy Morse code always got me. That requirement has been gone now for quite a while. 50 years ago I had the rules and electronics part down pat, but it's apparently all leaked out my ear holes since then. I'm having to relearn all of it. I'm going to try and take and pass both the Technician and General Class license test on the same day. My friend Eddie is going for his Amateur Extra Class license. He thinks I can pass all three tests on the same day, but I think my brain would explode, or I'd choke, or both.

So tell me, any Hams in the bigcoupe family?

I have been studying too, but keep getting distracted. I only want the tech., so I can broadcast. I don't plan to setup a repeater.
