I’ve been interested in ham radio/amateur radio for a while now. Well, today, my dear, sweet wife, myself, and 4 other people from our Ward went and took the ham radio license exam. All 6 of us were not currently licensed ham radio operators. Currently the FCC offers 3 ham radio license classes; Technician, General, and Extra. All 6 of us passed the first test (the technician), 2 of us (including myself) passed the general test, and 1 passed all 3 today. We could miss 9 questions on the 35-question test for both Technician and General. Both Amanda and I missed 3-questions on the Technician and I missed 9 on the general. One might say I got a perfect score on the general! 🙂
Our Ward had no ham radio operators in it before today. It now has 1 Extra, 1 General, and 4 Technicians! We do have to wait until our name appears in the FCC’s ULS database, which should be about Thursday. I’m excited. We’re talking about setting up a Ham Radio Club (since we need 4-members, and we have 6). Maybe North Las Vegas LDS Hams? Or North Las Vegas Mormon Hams? Latter-day Hams?
