I am a technician
« on: February 09, 2012, 09:59:37 PM »
I just back from taking my exam and scored 100%! I even gave the general a whirl and got 12 right without studying. I noticed the questions for the general test were quite a bit more technical. Now I have to wait for the FCC to assign me a call sign.

Congratulations on passing the Tech - and extra kudos for making 100%!  Yes, the General is a bit more technical, but you get a lot more privileges.  Hang in there - you'll have your call sign within the week!  GOOD WORK!

Thanks all! I posted the 100% to show folks it can be done with a little work and there may have been a tad bit of showboating :)
I have a small 2M handheld unit Yaesu FT-11R. I have been listening constantly since I bought it last weekend.
As for the general, I had no delusions I would pass, but thought for the same price, I might as well try.

I just checked the FCC database and I am legal to transmit now.

That's why I didn't stop at Tech.  Mine was worse.  Thank God for vanity signs!
