Now Playing: the 3- fan symphony
Topic: Wondring aloud
Hot as hell today, thus the 3 fans.
A week ago tomorrow, I passed the technician exam for the ham radio license. I don't have my call sign yet, so I can't transmit, though the dearly beloved bought use his and her handheld transcievers on the way home from the exam. I've been having fun playing with it.
I've checked the FCC website a couple of times for my call sign. It's too soon. Maybe by next weekend.
That I passed the code test is not a statement about my skill with Morse code, but to the standards of the test. I passed only because I got 27 characters in a row correct (minimum is 25). Even the examiner told me I needed to work on code. Um, yes. Now whether I will ever use it is another story.
Fourth of July picnic on Monday, fireworks show provided at a local high school that we can watch from the dearly beloved's back yard. A tradition.
Looking foward to it.
