Officially licensed!

I took my test on July 22, 2017 through the North Shore Radio Association in Danvers, MA. I passed my Technician exam after studying and reading KB6NU's No-Nonsense Study Guide for the Tech exam. I also prepped using HamStudy.org.

After an agonizing 10 day wait, the FCC issued my license and first call sign on August 2, 2017. I am now, for the time being, KC1HXT. I immediately applied for a vanity call sign I wanted and it's currently being processed by the FCC. Now, the wait.

A beginning

I have long had an interest in radios. A few days ago, I acquired a used Radio Shack Pro-668 off of eBay. While it's taking some getting used to, I'm starting to get the hang of it.

This blog will chronicle my radio adventures, not only with the Pro-668, but with other radios I own, such as my C. Crane Skywave.

Furthermore, I plan to begin studying again for my ham radio license. I have the book, but I put the studying aside due to other commitments. I hope to resume it and get my license!

I hope you join me on this adventure!
