Thanks to QRZ and other web sites for providing free practice tests and study material. must have taken and studied 100's. did well on practice tests was scoring 80-90 % the last few days. was confident, took test today and got 11 wrong!! passed but was not a personal satisfaction. But passing is passing, very proud and glad I made it. Pretty good for a old fart 70 years old !!! have an electrical background but not radio electronics. Trying to keep my mind active. NOW what equipment to get ?????
