Took both the tests today and passed! What a relief. I also took the Extra just for familiarization and WOW I think I need to do a lot of studying.
Congratulations! Welcome to a great hobby!
Times sure do change--when I took the Extra test (back in the late Pleistocene era), the written for Extra was downright easy, practically a walk in the park. In those days, the Advanced written was the brutal one, especially for those of us whose math wasn't great. :-)
Don't wait until you upgrade--start having fun NOW! PSK31 is a great way to get your feet wet, and if you can face the rapid-fire pace, you can jump into HF on a contest weekend--you'll make a hundred contacts in no time!
73 and GL! --ken
