Forgot to post this yesterday....the neighbors kept up to 2am Saturday night and then I had a test on Sunday. Should've done some skimming of element 3 material...maybe I would've passed that.

But, I passed element 2, so I have Technician privileges in the United States now. (I'm a fully qualified Amateur in Canada, though I was grandfathered into 60m-10m)

I did pretty good considering I did no studying for element 3 (only missed it by 2)....and it had been many years since I did my Advanced, because consensus was that I needed it to run the packet bbs for the school district. Even though the club bbs operator didn't....but once I was up, he quit running it.

Anyways...I've been in the US for over 10 years now...and now I can finally operate in this country.

Strange that I became less active after working a disaster....and the interest revived during the ice storm (some refer to it as the icepocalypse) last December.

I suppose it is part that my manager is a Ham....his XYL wrote for the Technician at the same time. I didn't realize that they had been waiting 10 months for a test session.

Not sure if I want to dig out the old equipment or buy all new stuff....some of the new HTs are cool looking (and a lot smaller). Of course, don't know if an HT will be a regular fixture on my belt. Though having two phones now (work cell plus my blackberry)....had reduced the space I have for other gadgets....

OTOH, I have wanted to be one of the special ones to get a work two-way.... I feel like they leave us people in the basement in the dark when stuff is happening....

Last year there was a big storm, knocked out power and they closed the University. Only nobody told us in the basement, where the entire basement has backup power.... of course, staying in the basement was probably a safe place to be....except that when we did leave, the emergency lighting for the exit stairs were dead...

Plus there's all the attention lately on other sorts of on campus emergencies....and how information is disseminated..... But, so far we only know it happened, because it was a test...and we were told when it would happen. But, we heard nothing during the actual test.

The Dreamer.
