It's official ... February 12th 2012 ... finally took the plunge and received my CSCE for my General Class License. Celebrated alone with meatball sandwich in one hand and french fries in the other. Seven (7) years to get to this point. Dayton will now have some meaning to it. Ham radio rocked on Sunday!!!
