    I'll get to it eventually, it shouldn't be hard but I've got other things I need to get done. Maybe if I get a HAM hardwired into my truck I'll get a license

    Ok, so you can buy the book, paperback, or you can download the Kindle version $4.99

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B079S3LJ8B/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_d_asin_title_o06?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    I opted for the digital version for two reasons. One, I could download it and switch between all my devices to read it or as I did while I was here at work, I would initiate the Text to Speech Feature on my tablet and using my headphones, just listen over and over every day.

    At the end of every day I then went to this website (below) and took a practice exam. You're allowed to miss 9 questions, I missed 3 after about 2 months of studying.

    http://aa9pw.com/technician-license/

    You can select the area of practice you want to study for "T0 thru T9" but just to cover my bases I studied for them all. After my exam I was invited to take the General Test because I did so well.

    Recently I downloaded this Kindle book so I can get more accustomed to using the radio (see below). I also have the Chirp cable and downloaded that software as well so I can program my radio. I have the Baofeng BF-F8HP.

    That paradise blue metallic is my favorite color Toyota ever did.

    Also, watching my wife drive off in my Tacoma is one of the scariest most proud times ever lol.

    I've got to take the Rav4 in for service this afternoon.

    That's love! My wife says she doesn't like driving it but she smiles ear to ear stapling up on the slider and smashes the gas with joy. Yeah, she like it.
    Amen! She always texts me when she gets to her destination to tell me the trucks fine and not parked under a tree.
