Where did you take it, when do they offer it, how much was it, and what study manual did you use? I really want to get my license. I've got a 2m radio but I can't use it to it's full potential because #1 I don't know how and #2 I don't have a license. So for now I'm only using the 151mhz range that BITD uses. I know these things can dial repeaters and you can talk to people in Australia and all kinds of cool stuff so I'd really like to know how it works. Are you going to get your Amateur Radio license plates? They cost $36 to register and the annual fee is waived if operator agrees to assist during emergencies.
The test was $14 and they give the test on the second saturday of each month at a church near Valley view and washington. Check out lvhamtest.com for more info. There is a test in Parhump next week.
To study, go to qrz.com and take the practice tests. There are 12 tests to practice with and they are the same questions you will see on the test. The test is only 35 questions and was cake after doing the practice tests. You dont even need a study book, just google anything you dont understand.
What kind of radio's did you guys get? Pic's?
I am leaning towards the Icom 208.
Lets get a picture thread going of mounted radio's, or we can all meet up one night at a sonic or something to compare installs and antenna's.
