Just passed the General Exam. Time to press that PTT button on the 'ole Kenwood TS-590s. Have a LDG KT-100 fed by a 98' King QSO end fed antenna.

I will be taking the Extra Exam next month.

...and it all started with a $35 Baofeng HT mention in GD.

Congratulations! One more step to go.

Remember, you have to have a separate radio for each mode and band.

Hey, for 35 bucks, how could I not get into the hobby? Nearly 2 grand later...

I'm glad the wife has no idea how much this stuff costs.
