    Got my callsign

    I passed my Technician's exam on Sunday, and this morning my callsign was posted to the FCC ULS. KI7LGC

    I've got nothing to actually say, I am just excited about it.

    Congrats to you as well. Have you used your radio much since getting your license?

    Congratulations and welcome to the hobby. Check out AENMAR Net, Monday night @900pm on metro link system. 147.24+ 162.2hz pl, 146.90- 162.2hz pl are the major repeaters but there are 5 in the constellation.

    Oh, and having nothing to say has never stopped a ham before. Just listen in most any net. LOL

    I don't know how strong those repeaters are, but the Metrolink repeaters aren't real close to me. I might be able to hit the Shaw Butte one from where I'm at, but not sure. I'll have to listen on Monday night.

    Maybe once I get my roof antenna for VHF/UHF.

    Congrats from KI7HPI - Ted. You sure got yours in a hurry, I had to wait a bit over a week before mine posted.

    Mine was emailed to me the next morning. Weird. The folks that administered the test actually told me I would have it that night. So maybe it is how fast the testers submit the application.

    That is one advantage to living in the valley, I reckon. I took mine with this club back in October 2016:

    http://www.kachina-arc.org/

    Don't think they even asked for my email addy, but then again, I am not an actual member of that club . . .

    Funny side note, on New Year's eve (and yes I was intoxicated) I got on the Porter Mtn VHF repeater and said, "Happy New Years!" and got a call back from KI7HPJ, the very next sequential license from mine. I need to try to hail him again sometime to chat as we obviously(?) took the test at the same place and time.
