Just want to say how glad I am to have found this site. I am not yet a Ham but hope to be soon. I have been reading Tech Q&A and Now Your Talking and taking the practice exams on this site. I have been passing them the last while. I have always had an interest in Ham radio. Trying to learn the code when I was a scout was a dismal failure (many years ago). That closed the door for me. I used CB for many years and met some nice people. Things changed and those of us who tried to be nice were being blasted off the air by vulgar talk and high power. I did not even dare leave it on with my wife and kids in the car. Many posts I have read have made comment on how stupid someone is if they pass the new Tech Test. I hope you all don't feel that way. So far I have been doing this on my own and would welcome help. Some said that a spelling and grammer test should be included. I can tell you some of the worst spelling and grammer I have read is in e-mail from so called higher ups where I work ! They don't use spell check ? What can I say, we are all human. We all need to encourage, not tear down. We all learn in different ways Hope to find this in the Ham hobby and to pass and have a call sign soon.
