Heartiest congratulations, nice job! After passing Tech & Gen I took my look at the Extra (25:50) so have a healthy respect for the leap of an exam that is from the General. I've found over the past year that I truly only started actually learning after getting on the air, getting dirty & acquiring boo-boos like any "kid." But as I continue to be open to the learning I've learned ways to relate some of the things on that exam so I may give it another shot.

Again, congrats.

Thanks for the kudos. 


Both of us used Ham Test Online to get through the test.  I did my Tech and General last Aug using it and then studied about 30 hours for the X.  WL used it for two months and passed all three.  $35 will get you the Extra anf in my opin, its the best way to get through it.

For those reading here, please note:  I am a stay-home grandma with very few responsibilities.  I spent far more than the recommended 30-minutes-or-more-per-day studying for those three tests.

Nope, just checked too.  But my funds moved ok, so now I have a fistful of money (and my "look, I passed!" certificate) to shop with.

Need to find a versatile unit for the home, if it moves easily to the RV that's a plus, and thinking a handheld to carry on me when I'm on the motorcycle or on foot.  No solar power at my place yet, which is insane, this is Texas and we get at least partial sun 300+ days a year.   I will do some research about battery power - stands to reason, it will be needed most when power lines and cell towers have been knocked out by a tornado or something.
