  I'm blissfully unaware of how little I know.
  I realize how little I know but would like to learn more.
  I know some stuff, but realize I need to learn more. I can't really explain it well to anyone.
  I know a lot and can explain it to a 4th grader.

Spotlight K6CU
K6CU These days I operate with a minimal amount of gear. TS-850sat and a HF6v vertical. On QRP I use the HW-8. Still work DX, and still operate 100% on cw.

Strays Add a Stray!
