This has been a very busy week for me, and really, I can’t complain! Today marks the accomplishment that I should have made when I was a teenager, and too chicken to try to pass the test. I always did horribly in school, mostly because I didn’t study well enough. Well, I planned to study all this week for the Amateur Radio Technician license, and what I ended up doing was studying last weekend, studying a little bit on Thursday, and cramming last night. But the good news is that I passed!!! So now I have to wait until the FCC database has my ID, and then I can transmit. I am so happy that I really did need to share. So, if you want to know how geeky I am, I am just that geeky 🙂
I had the opportunity to take the General class license test while I was there, and even though I never opened the book for it, I took the test. Well, I did not pass that test. As a matter of fact, I failed that one with flying colors! But that’s okay, because I did not go with the intention of taking let alone passing that test. I can study for it, and take it at a later time. For now, I am excited that I passed the test that I intended to take, and that I will be able to converse on the frequencies which are used by SKYWARN and other weather related amateur frequencies.
