Upgraded yesterday.  Thanks to eham practice exams for great simulated exam study.  I'm gonna take a break and enjoy the new bands for the Summer and then get started on Extra study.  Thanks also to all who offered support without even knowing it.

See you down the log.

Hello.

I do hope you find in this hobby something that pleases you.
I like playing radio and talking to foreign hams.
And, remember, in CB you are limited to 4 watts and 40 channels.
Here, 1000+ watts and except for this one band with 5 channels, you can do just about anything!

Congrats!   If you did 11m skip and liked it you'll love the HF ham bands since you now have a variety of those bands to pick from.  If you haven't done HF DX in the past, then welcome to a whole new world.  HF phone/CW always struck me as "classic amateur radio" but given all the other modes you can operate with on HF, you can go beyond that if you wish.

Big Gun, QRP, contester, rag chewer, nets or just out there on your own, you will hopefully find your niche or three and have fun for many years to come.  Now get out there this weekend and enjoy Field Day!  Somewhere there's a tent or shelter where a radio needing an operator will be.  You'll get some on-air practice and a chance to play with a variety of equipment.  Help with the setup and teardown to see how a station can be assembled.  Meet new and interesting people, then become one yourself...LOL!

A big 73 your way,

Rick
