Extra class!

I earned my Extra class license today!  I took a “cram n’ exam” session sponsored by the Andrew Johnson Amateur Radio Club in Greeneville.  I was sweating bullets when it came to the afternoon as I was afraid I wasn’t going to retain enough information.  However, I was cool as a cucumber when it came to test time and I didn’t go back and erase any of my answers, heh.

My good friend Scott Anderson sat for his Technician license and passed with flying colors so now the wait is on to see what callsign he gets assigned.

  1. Congratulations! You’ve made it! Gonna keep your callsign?

    Now I have to catch up! I’ve missed some good conversations and DX because of license restrictions.

    I discovered my great-great-(great?)-uncle was an old school ham (W0ASM) and I’ve aspired to get to Extra since then. Funny how things like that run in the family even if you don’t know it.

    One of these days we should plan a contact on 40m SSB (seems to be what my antenna’s best at) just to see if we have reliable contact.

    Take care,
