I believe I have the ability to pass the extra exam with enough study, but I haven't even used my general privileges yet.

Congratulations!

You aren't Frank Deford of sports writer/commentary fame are you? If so, it's an honor to share the forum with you - big fan. If not, it's still cool to have an Extra Class around. I'm with Gargamel, though... I haven't put my General through its paces yet.

Definitely pursue it if you're interested, but, I have found that I got the most radio bang for the buck with the General and the Tech licenses.  You get a little extra spectrum space with Extra over General.  I use it, but the main reason I would do Extra again is to have learned the material in the study guide.  I know, the study guide isn't the same as experience, but I still learned a lot and made better use of my HF privileges after studying up for the Extra exam.

Exactly my take on it.  The extra spectrum is nice, meh, but the material that gets covered is what made it worthwhile for me.
