I'm really getting back into 'radio' (see my entries in cb, pmr, scanners, receivers....) and enjoying it enormously. Anyway, I've got the Foundation Now! book and am off to meet my Ham Radio tutor next Monday to sort out a course and exam.

Will let you all know how I get on....

I'VE PASSED!!! Kept it quiet from you guys....but I have been studying hard lately and then went off and did the course and exam this weekend. I got 100% on the morse code test, 100% on the practical and 88% on the written. Was a bit disappointed on the 88% after I'd got 96% in my mock the day before. :) Anyway, if there's any of you thinking of getting into Ham Radio and want any advice... :D
