Excellent!

So now you can tell us what is the RMS value of... 

Just Kidding! Two great things happen when you pass your Extra. The studying pressure is over and you get a big smile and want to tell people that have no idea what you mean when you say you are an Extra.

I had a family member say "extra what"? I had no answer :) Cause I didn't want to say Extra Ham :D.
Books I highly recommend:

One Second After
Under the Dome
Earth Abides
The Road
The Stand

Congrats again!!! I know how it is waiting on the FCC.

What kind of a call did you get?

0=ZERO

2X1 Like NL0A
2X2 Like AD0AA
2X3 Like KF0XAA
1X3 Like N0AAC
1X2 (none available at this time)

Although I have heard of 2/3/4 testers before you are the first person that I know at the time you got a fresh ticket from FCC. The others were Vanitys by the time I knew of their success.
Books I highly recommend:

One Second After
Under the Dome
Earth Abides
The Road
The Stand
