I knew I was taking my General, so I started stocking up on gear. I passed on Jan 12, 2019 and started setting things up that Sunday.
The HF setup:
So far I've mostly been on FT8 with contacts as far as South Korea, New Caledonia, Argentina, South Africa, Croatia, & Alaska. I've started Calling CQ on SSB though, so wish me luck! If you hear me out there, be nice.
