    Maxand-

    Don't just take the technician test. If you pass it, go for the General and Extra also. You can take one after the other at the same testing session at no additional charge. With your knowlege and experience in electronics, I would be surprised if you didn't make at least General.

    Possible they just fixed what part they were asked to fix and nothing else.

    Come on guys, be nice. The man is a nice sounding multi lingual guy asking for help, don't give him trouble. Help him... It's not like some of the recent pompous post where the OP comes out swinging at the help, that needed a smack down. This man needs your guidance, and he is generously asking those that may contribute to his question for help.

    We need more things like this , help others and not say I got mine to heck with others.
    I think there is hope for the hobby if folks still try to assist others.
    I admittedly was wrong, health problems do that to me sometimes I had that confused with soemthing else, My bad
    Interesting how some self imagined alpha dawgs will instigate instead of help someone.
    Thankfrul for the percentage of those who DO help I am sure it is apreciated by those who ask for the help we can all be Elmers in that sense IMHO 73 all, MAx I hope you have your problem solved, many good people on site, welcome and hope you get your license as well, that is a very nice radio to have!

    I think in wanting to help MAXAND a lot of us jumped in making assumptions. My first assumption was that the easiest fix would be if the radio were just not set up correctly. As he gave us more information, we realized our assumptions were wrong. Frankly, it sounds like MAXAND knows quite a bit more about modern electronics than most of us that tried to "help."

    Hats off to you MAXAND for staying polite and even laughing at himself (something many of us are incapable of doing) and showing his class!

    Welcome to ham radio, MAX. Why not send an e-mail to your section manager, introduce yourself, and get his help to get linked in to your local ham community?

    Bro,

    I don't know what makes you feel good about yourself, but if making fun of this guy in obvious need of help is your form of entertainment, you are making the ham community look very bad. Why do you do this ? Have we no heart ?

    It's definitely NOT too late. I was coming up to 40 years old when I got interested in radio again, and I have had a brilliant time with it over the past few years. I am really enjoying CW - something that I would never have dreamed of enjoying when I was a young lad! Keep at it, and have fun.

    The club up in Auburn has an online Tech course. It is primarily the same material in the ARRL Tech Exam Study Guide, but the presentation is different.

    http://www.w6ek.org/elmerhelp.html

    The Rubicon Trail Foundation has classes in El Dorado Hills or Placerville. No classes are schedule, but it doesn't hurt to email them if you are interested.

    Or you can try the club for Yolo County.
