Default June 1 test in Englewood

I'm taking the Technician Class test June 1 at 10 AM at the Englewood Public Library. Anyone from up north also interested in taking the test then and car-pooling?

Thanks! And I definitely will. I gotta say, the more I study and the more I learn about HAM, the more I wonder why I hadn't done this sooner. It's like I've been discovering my (not so well hidden) inner nerd.

I sat to your left this morning during the test Keith. Thought it might be you, but the room was too quiet to spark up a conversation.

Well, nice to meet you... Sort of.

Gotta say, to anyone out there on the fence about getting your license, DO IT! My total investment has been $60 ($45 for a Bao-Feng UV-5R) and $15 for the test. It's really a no-brainer. It costs less than a tank of gas!

The only studying I did was to download the No Nonsense Study Guide (http://www.kb6nu.com/tech-manual/) and an iPhone app with practice tests (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ham-...367033758?mt=8). I worked on both just when it was slow at work over the last month (which wasn't very often).
