Just got home from taking my Tech Class Ham test. I'd been studying on line, on QRZ.com, and taking the practice tests. Most of the questions I got today, I'd never seen before but I passed anyway. :D This has been a good day.:cool:

Thank you, guys. :D
I can't wait to get my call sign. I probably won't do much talking but it's good to know that I can, if I want/need to.

Scout, Technician Class is the basic, beginner's class for Ham Radio operators. The next class is General, then Extra. I didn't need morse code but for Extra you do. I'm not sure if General needs to know morse code or not. Do you, Amerijeep?

If I got the explanation wrong, please correct me.

Nope, they dropped the code requirement.

I've always been more of a turkey person myself.

Amy,

congrats! I got my Tech about a year and a half ago and just recently started talking it up. Finally got the radio installed and that made it fun.

You no longer need code for any license- not even Extra. You can, however, still do code if you like...

Con'grats Amy on your achievement! Welcome to the Ham ranks. Always good to have another Jeeper with a Ham License.

Check the FCC website for your name and new Call sign to pop up.

Skeeter already answered, but there is no longer a code requirement for HF. I only got code out of the way about a year before they dropped it myself.

Sorry, but I don't have another HT to pass on. I wish I did. It would be yours.

Thanks, Whiteyj. I can see how it would be addictive.

I'm official now! My call sign came through today. I'm KE7NIO. I'm a happy Ham. :D
