Thanks for stopping in my web site. On 01/21/04 I retired from the Federal Government (US Army Corps
OF Engineers) on Disability. I'm also a Disabled Veteran; rated 100% (60% Disability + 40% based on
unemployability.) My VA ID Card allows entry into any Military Post Exchange; MWR and Post
Commissary. Having decided on what to do during my down time, I've decided to compile this Web site showing my interest and involvement in the Amateur Radio World. After reading up on some of the community and other involvements Ham Operators perform: I've decided to study for my Technician Class License. On 07/06/2001, I obtained my Tech Ticket. Then on 07/07/2002 I took the General written exam, and received my CSCE. Having procrastinated for the duration of the time to take the CW Exam to become a full General; time lapsed, thus, expiring my General CSCE. On that I've retested for the General Class License, and again received my General CSCE ON 11/01/2003. My full General Ticket came at a later date: . March, 2007. I've just purchased the "Extra Class" License Manual, hopeing to take the test soon. I'm still thinking of taking the CW Exam for future use.
