past the Amateur Extra exam. Yahoo!!
This was hard studying for me so can't brag with "that was easy"
nevertheless, it is only when I studied for the extra that I started to understand better the whole radio technology.

the best way I can describe it is that for tech and general I studied "about" the concepts, but for the Extra I had to study and understat "the" concepts.

I recommend studying for the extra, but plan on spending significant amount of time.
For reference, I studied three weeks for the Extra, including in the last two weeks doing almost nothing but working studying and sleeping. but I am thick so it may be easier for most.

Got 47/50 so I am pleased

Does it mean anything or just wanted something else? You're an extra, you can get the 1x2 and 2x2 calls! But still it's less weight than was KC2YRF.

to the best of my knowledge it means nothing.
It is easy for me to say it.

My Extra is still in process. I will look into changing it again if I can find somethng easy to say. k2rh can be fun but is taking as well is w2rh. kd2rh is not but kd2kdk is easier to say and has a ring to it.

If anyone can come up with available cool 1x2 or 2x2 don't hesitate, let me know about it.
