    Hey everyone. I just wanted to let those of you know who are either just jumping into the hobby or planning on doing an upgrade...It's worth it.

    Don't give up. You can always teach an old dog new tricks. But if you are happy where you are, don't let anyone make you feel like you have to upgrade. I'm mostly talking to those who wish they could. Maybe it seems just beyond reach, or the things covered in the Extra Exam are just too much.

    My wife is a mechanical engineer with a minor in math. She is a general class planning to upgrade to extra. Me though? I'm just a retired and washed up grunt turned commo.

    If you tell yourself things like, "I can't do this." long enough, you will start believing it. I tell my kids that all the time with their school work. People (both adults and kids) have a way of convincing themselves they'll never be able to do something.

    This isn't a race, either. You're not competing for first place. All you need to do is cross the finish line.

    Great job.
    And you're right it's not a race, but you did cross the finish line, a job well done.
    Incentive licensing helps you learn, and grow, now you have all the Privileges.

    I hope to talk to you on the air
