First Contact

Posted: July 21, 2016 in Green Eggs & HAM

Well after waiting for a little over a week for my technician license to come through the FCC, it arrived on 7/19/2016.  My radio arrived on Wednesday 7/20.  I had a late night for work so didn’t get home until around 10P and played with it until about midnight.  Drove to work the next day and back home, no contacts..yeah I tried.

Finally around 8:00P on 7/21/2016 I heard a call come out on the Milton, FL repeater so I jumped out of bed and grabbed my radio.  I was very nervous to reply back but I finally told myself I had to do it at some point.  Coolest part of the story is it ended up being the gentleman I sat by when I was taking my test!
