YES GOT TO GENERAL ON THE FIRST SHOT!
Congrats! What's the first thing you're going to do with it?
@jco42 get on HF as soon as my call gets in the ULS and call CQ for days.
@six789 I’m tentatively thinking of trying to upgrade from the UK Foundation to Intermediate, but let’s just say I’m not a natural electrical engineer. Some advance study required before I even attempt the course. It involves soldering components; again not something I’ve done much of!
@Vanessa yeah I studied a whole lot to get the US general.
I don't know if the UK has anything like ham study.org but if it does, man they are useful as all else.
@six789 I bet you did! Our full licence is a self-study thing. I don’t really need more than Foundation as it gets me HF access and the main restriction is to 10W power, but it’s nice to progress. A local ham club run great courses at weekends, which is how I got my current licence. They were very good to a distinctly non-techy girl!
@six789 Congrats! By the way I grew up in 55921 - not too far away from you :-). I am in the process of getting a few coworkers to take the test as well.
@sir_tronics Wow! Cale! That's not too far at all. Spam town born and raised Lol.
