Call signs were posted today. My dads is Yankee Yankee India and mine is Yankee Yankee Juliet.

Now to do something about the lack of radio equipment!  ;D

Well, I passed my Amatuer Technician Class test and obtained my CSCE.  So, just have to wait a week or two for my call sign and I will be officially living in the world of ARS!   ;D

If it weren't for you guys on this board, the thought of getting at least a Tech license would still be way in the back, buried in the caverns of my brain!  So, thanks to you guys!  Since I don't work in emergency services anymore, don't really have the time to volunteer as would be needed, but enjoyed it, I am planning on contacting some of the local SKYWARN/RACES/ARES folks.

Been taking practice tests and done pretty well.  Glad it's mostly common sense.  I'll take the test some time...lol

General here, studying for extra. When I took my general, they asked if I wanted to continue and take the extra test, so I did. Missed it by 6. :-(

Don't have too far to go, though.

I just passed my TECH test this weekend- Feb 7, 2009.  Scheduled to take the GENERAL test on March 14.    Husband isn't interested in getting his but I am
the prepper in the family and I thought this would be a great addition to the communication prep.   
I can't believe the general public doesn't take the stories to heart about people WALKING in the ice storms to the local law enforcement office to find out
where the shelters were.   This was after only two days- no preps in the house, no heat and NO way to communicate after the cell and land phone didn't work.
ARRGGGG.....
