I studied for a month or so and re-learned quite a bit of electronics for AC circuits. Resistance, Reactance, Polar Impedance. I took the test on the morning of February 5th and missed 1 out of 50. So now I am an Extra Class Licensed Ham Radio operator. No more tests to take. This is as high as it gets.
I am still working on what type of antenna to put up. I will probably do an 80 meter dipole that I can tune to higher frequencies. I have built an 80m SSB Voice Transceiver and a 40m CW Morse Code radio. I don’t have any wire in the air to hook them up to, however. It will be cool to hear my first transmissions on radios I built.
