I got my Technician license a couple of months ago and am working on my General.

I got interested in Ham radio as a child, but became frustrated by the code requirements - and then discovered Rock 'n Roll - and Girls.

I had my FCC commercial license in the 70s as I worked in the music business as a Studio Engineer / Technician for 20+ years.

I couldn't figure out how to reopen the poll, so I just deleted it and posted a new one that won't close.

If you voted in the last poll, please do so again.

Congratulations! I was inactive for many years, but I'm having fun with it again. I really enjoy building antennas.
