    Thank you all for the kind words! I'm going to spend some time today cruising 20 meters and hopefully make some more contacts. I am still trying to find the sweet spot on my transmitter where I'm putting out the best signal without over driving and distortion. Also I'm going to look at boom microphones as the Yaesu hand held is a bit cumbersome. Thanks again!

    Congratulations and welcome to the HF world. The next few years should be pretty exciting, with the return of sunspots opening up the higher bands. I know 12 and even 10 meters popped open earlier this week. I suspect by fall 15 and 12 will be open daily for DX. I would suggest you also explore 17 meters, the people there are mostly there just to have fun, whereas 20 has many nets that claim frequencies on which you do not want to tread. 17 and 40 are good places for newcomers.

    Congrats. I've been licensed for 63 years and have held Novice, General, Advanced, and for many years my Extra. However I was a General for a very long time and enjoyed most of what ham radio has to offer. Yes there are some advantages to the Extra but a General Class license gives you most of the privileges needed to make the most out of the hobby. Enjoy
