The 3 required Ham examiners arrived and we got down to the business of the first the Technician and then the General Ham tests. Enjoyed the whimsical dragon which is front-and-center in the oriental City Council meeting room where they set up for the test. Don't see that every day!
After much paperwork, I used the two #2 pencils and non-programed calculator to make my way thru the 70 questions on the 2 tests.
I missed one on the Technician test and two on the General - not too shabby although I would have liked to score a perfect 100 of course! (You are allowed to miss 9 questions on each test for a passing grade)
Got my certificate - will have to wait a week or so for my call sign to be published.
Then I'll be able to set up the SSB (Single Side Band) radio on the boat to send/receive email and give position reports no matter where we are in the world!! Stay tuned - you'll get an email from me soon with the new address to use when we're on the boat.
