I actually had the equipment before my upgrade. I'm a third generation operator, so I have tons of stuff. I'm actually in the process of selling a bunch of stuff off, including two HF base rigs.
Anyway, good luck with it.

I wouldn't hold my breath. It will be around at a minimum of another 15 months. I think it will likely stick around awhile longer.
It really isn't that bad to learn. I struggled a little with the more complex characters, especially numbers, but taking the practice exams on the net helped a lot.
You should go for the code. You'll be proud of yourself for getting it knocked out.

|kg4kpg||Couldn't have painted it any better. I'm just waiting for the day I upgrade from Tech so I can reach around the world. I can't stand morse and haven't really made the effort to learn. I've heard rumors it was going away, suits me.|

It's a contact confirmation card between ham radio operators. When you have made a contact with another station, via voice or code or whaever, proper etiquette is to confirm with a post card with all contact info as well as signal reports, etc.
It's really very cool, although it probably doesn't sound like it. ha. Nothing like getting a card from the other side of the world thanks to a little radio station you built.
This is a rough description though. Some of the others may can paint a better picture.

|whiteyj||Looks good! It would definitely be an original QSL card to receive.|

|amerijeep||Looks good. That would look cool hanging on the wall of anyone's shack.|

I had a line drawing of a YJ, made it into a TJ, added some color and props to Wrangler Forum and there it is.
