On wednesday, I passed my Extra class exam. This is something that I have been preparing to do for over a year now. It felt good. I am not sure what I am going to do with it now. Currently my shack has been displaced by the need to shift my children’s rooms. I have a tower lying in pieces in the back yard. The hole is dug for the concrete base. I just need to get the components together. The trick is, I just had to sink several thousand dollars into fixing my truck and replacing the family car that was totaled in an accident. Oh well. At least I don’t have to keep checking off “Ham radio study” from my daily todo list .
