And a Ham is branded!

Say hello to KF7ROS!
My call came up on the FCC database this afternoon and I am excited.  It's not so bad that I need a vanity call thank goodness!
Finally ordered a handy-talkie from HRO today.  I got the Wouxun KG-UV3D-2/UHF and am looking forward to making my first contact.
I'll be listening/watching Ham Nation with a different frame of mind from now on that's for sure!

73 and see you on the air!

HAM Test

Went down to the Seattle Chapter of the American Red Cross to do my ARRL ham radio exam.
The results:
Technician:    PASS
General:        FAIL  (not a surprise since I didn't really study)

I should be getting my call letters in about a week.
Now to pick out a nice handheld radio...

I'll keep you posted!
