I’m now KF6KYI/AE

Just got back from Pacificon. Had a nice time, and managed to pass the upgrade exam. I’m now an Extra class ham. Bow down and worship me! (Just kidding.) The test was a lot closer than I thought it should have been: I seemed to get a lot of questions that were unfamiliar to me, despite a couple of weeks of doing practice exams. Still, it’s all done!

Having attended your wedding, I know exactly what kind of ham you are…

Congrats Mark! I need to get off my tush and do it as well.

Congrats on passing the Extra exam. I passed mine back in June. I too found a lot of the questions unfamiliar. The question pool is just too big.
