I just thought I would start off my station blog by saying hello to everyone and telling a little bit about myself. Until this past September I held a General class license. I decided to upgrade to Extra class as sometimes the only activity I could find was I the Extra class portion of the bands. It took a lot of studying and when I was ready instead of waiting and taking the upgrade exam with the radio club I belonged to I drove over 30 miles to a small town I was familar with. The test was run by the Fulton County Amatuer Radio Club. I was surprised to see so many club members there helping out with the exams. They made me feel welcome and the majority of them congratulated me when I did pass my exam! Since getting the upgrade I have made numerous DX contacts which has been very exciting to me.
