Default HAM Tech test

So is this the only place to find available exam test dates, or are there more out there?

I'm consistently passing my practice exams now and think I want to give it a shot soon...

Default woo hoo

Passed the Tech test today (many thanks to the folks at Aerospace Corp for letting me crash their test session!) They told me I could take the General if I wanted, so I tried that and missed by 7. Not too bad for guessing on all but 3 questions..haha!

Still need to get an antenna & cable...I got the Gamiviti mount for my FJ60.

Nicely done! Best recipe to get on the air is to start listening to others, and pick up the jargon as well as the etiquette and you'll be rag-chewing and having a blast in no time!

Again, Well done! Welcome!
