Hi to Tim KJ4YWR over in Virginia whose ham radio call has come through. Tim is my cousin Elaine's husband and he just passed his is Technician's amateur radio exam (see my previous posts). According to Elaine she will be doing the Technician's exam in November, while Tim goes for his General class licence. Good luck to them both. She also tells us they are immersing themselves in the hobby. Tomorrow they are intending an informal ham get together that occurs every Saturday in a local diner and the Sunday they are off to a hamfest in Maryland. Tim has already noted that the hill nearest the hamfest is four points for Summits on the Air. I hope they have tight hold on that credit card as they are about to experience that "I want it all and I want it now!" feeling that you get at you first couple of visits to such an event. Combined with the "I am not really sure what I need yet" feeling of the newly licensed it can be a dangerous and expensive combination.
Tim thinks his call is a bit of a mouthful but KJ4 You Will Remember sounds quite memorable to me.
