General Leo

General TWiTBack to the Mt. Diablo Amateur Radio Club tonight to take the General exam, which I passed thanks to Gordo West WB6NOA’s great study materials. I can now officially navigate the HF waters with my CSCE in hand and a slant AG after my call sign, just in time to try out the Icom 7800 at this weekend’s open house.
Thanks to Jim Siemens AF6PU, one of the VEs, for a sweet graduation gift: two classic radio manuals, including the 1940 Radio Operating Questions and Answers. I should be ready for my Extra exam by next month!
