  1. Congrats!


  2. Congrats on getting your ticket! There’s a great intersection between the ham radio world and the maker world.

    And allow me to encourage you to look into the world of HF, particularly digital mode HF communication (psk31, MFSK) were I think you’d find that there’s a lot of interesting stuff to do.

    73, don’t forget to smile and have fun

  9. Congratulations on the new ticket, as I find being one of those volunteer examiners telling a new candidate he or she has passed their initial examination.

    I suggest you find a radio club locally that participates in Field Day — it’s a real blast!
