Ham radio anyone?
Last October I got my amateur radio license, passing the Technician and General class tests. In December, I tested for the highest level of license, the Amateur Extra, passing that exam as well. Since starting down this road I've had a lot of fun, talked with some cool folks and learned quite a bit.
I enjoy picking up the microphone and looking for someone to talk to, whether here in Illinois, somewhere else in the US, or even overseas; however, lately I've been spending most of my time chasing contacts via FT8, a rapid-fire digital communications mode.
That's it for now, just a quick note to start the conversation. I hope to write more in the future about this as well as other stuff.
