    I originally got in to ham radio by way of Number Stations. I remember reading about them in my college days on the Internet and I wanted to get a radio to listen to them. I got my radio before I got my license. I got interested in the technology of the radio and never looked back. I originally got licensed in 2011 and only during COVID did I start getting more active. I spend most of my time on HF these days.

    right now I can tell you what has kept me in ham radio. my husband had a general license and put up a station. i couldn't talk on the frequency that he was on so I got my general last February. that stinker got his extra in May so I started hitting the books and I just passed the test and got mine as you can see by my new call sign. I changed it to a five land call. My previous call sign was KA7GFY for 40 plus years. it was hard to give up but I got the new one that i wanted so like the first one it is a keeper!! AI5DL

    Just spoke to one of the men from the local ham radio club. Since I passed the Extra test in April,a lot of the men now want to take the Extra test.
    It takes a woman to motivate the men to take the test. Seems a lot of the men were satisfied with being technician or general license.
    I hope the women will also be motivated to get their license.

    Awesome. Normally, this is the other way around. I'm also going for the extra next October. Is a 2 year study, but go and try it anyway
