Same here. I'm just getting too old to climb up in the rafters and run cable. Maybe enlist the help of some of the younger at our radio club.

I wanted to learn Binary so I enrolled in Binary 101. I seemed to have missed the first four courses. Big Grinnie

I've been a ham since 1978. I suppose I should join the Quarter Century Club :-)

Two of my trike riding partners are ham operators and have been pressuring me into taking the test to get my license. I've signed up for an online course, but my motivational level had been low - one of the riders has suggested that I wait for winter as I won't want to be outside then. oldman

De EA4∗∗ Spain

I've been a ham since 1979.

After 23 years I returned the hobby,

My legendary and magnificent Drake TR7, I changed the PIN diodes damaged and I have good reports in 40 Meters.

I have made QSOs with two famous: King Hussein of Jordan JY1 and EA0JC king of Spain Juan Carlos, Henry Kisinnger induced both in this hobby.

Two of the rarest QSOs were north and south pole.

2 meters SSB QSO 1,500 miles From the top of mount in southern Spain to the island of Malta to the eastern Mediterranean.

Etc etc

RE: CQ, CQ, CQ... calling all ham radio operators...
For the first time I checked into the Off Topic forum and found this long thread. I hesitate to post, but what the heck .... I used to be a ham many years ago - WA0DOM. I got my General the summer after HS in 1962. Had little money but ran a second hand DX35 CW transmitter and built a receiver from a kit. Went off to college that fall, and joined the University Amateur Radio Club. Unfortunately the Clubhouse was burgled and all their equipment stolen that first semester, and for whatever reason it just never got going again.

Then there came Army duty, then back to professional school, then on to many different things and interests in my life and I never got back into the ham world.

Now I would have the time for it, and maybe even a bit of money for it, but the thought of the complexity of the new technology is frightening. I'm sure it's a long way from the vacuum tube days. I'm not sure I could master enough of it to pass an exam. Are the ARRL and their study guides still around?

It's been years since I even thought of such things.

The ARRL is still active. As for studying -- use Google to find practice exams. You'll be up to speed in no time.
Try AA9PW's practice exams.

I think I used the practice test software that came with the ARRL guides. There are other sites I tried like Ham Test Online. I took the General and Extra on the same day and I'm also an ARRL Volunteer Examiner now.
