Got our HAM callsigns!
Hurray! Last week Bryan and I took our tests for amateur radio licenses, and we both passed! Bryan got his no-code Technician, and I got my General Class license. We've been waiting for the FCC to assign us our call signs, and this morning "BOOM - der it iz!" they were finally in the database. Bryan is WH7BP and I am WH7BQ. These really don't matter as much, as we are planning to convert to "vanity" callsigns WH7BRY and WH7DAD. Too cool! We'll probably go on the air for the first time tonight, at 7:30 for the EARC radio club nighly net.
