Just an update on my daughter Megan, KI4WXJ. On January 11, 2009 she passed her upgrade to Amateur Extra at the young age of 8. Her goal was to pass her upgrade before she turned nine and she did. She passed her Technician at 6 in July 2007, General in January 2008. While she's not the youngest, she's one of the youngest.
Congrats, what an achievement for an 8 yr old. I wish I would of started with my grandson earlier, but he just recently showed interest in radio.
