    It's definitely a great morning!

    Took my Technicians class HAM test yesterday and.......

    No, I didn't just pass it, I Fucking Crushed It!

    [​IMG]

    I didn't know it at the time but apparently didvery well beacause before telling me, theyasked me if I wanted to take the Amateur Extratest.

    All said and done, 35 questions from a pool of over 400, with an allowance to miss 9. I took about 9 or 10 practice tests studying for a about 2 weeks, 1 week very seriously. A couple hours the night before, an hour here the morning of, then a half an hour there right before.

    I Memorized OHMs Law formula, Power in Watts formula. Memorized the common circuitcomponents of a transceiver.

    The test questions are at random. Mine were barely any of the ones on my practice tests. I only had one component question and one formula question. The rest were all theory and practice.

    I thought for sure I was going to psych myself out after the first couple of questions. I was shaking. I took my time moved on when I saw a unfamiliar question, then went back to it.

    I only guessed at three, two I'm sure my first instinct was right, but guessed wrong. The third I was completely unsure.

    So basically I only missed 3 total out of 35.

    I'm going to study more and get some handson real world practice then go for my Amateur Extra!

    I have a Boafeng BF-F8HP that I bought on a lightning deal

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00MAULSOK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awdb_t1_CyOfCb7J62FVV

    I also bought a authentic Nagoya 17" whip for it, a Nagoya magnetic for the truck, and a Chirp programming cable. I plan on buying a couple extra batts.

    Will need to tell me what you think of it. Are you thinking about a base unit? Around here the local fd and sherrifs department will pay for some of the antenna if you alow them to put a repeater up there.

    Now put a scanner in your truck.

    At the right angle it probably does look pretty good. I just can't find that angle
