I need to get off my butt and look into getting a ham license. Been meaning to do it for years.

The Tech license is dirt simple, except for the operating rules and regs, you should have learned it all already, courtesy Goodfellow AFB/Ft Huachuca.

General was harder, I found it helpful to take a course through my club, YMMV.

I need a class for the Amateur Extra class, too, the club is planning one for January, hope I can get time off for it...
