    I passed my general test today. I'm pretty stoked about it. After being a tech for the 16 months, I went to the Salisbury NC hamfest and was a first time go. So now I need a multi ban antenna lol

    Keeping my call for now, maybe after I get my extra will I apply for a vanity

    Btw I have no idea if this is the right section. If it ain't mods please move

    Congratulations I took my general at a hamfest also. I remember being really nervous I don't think I looked at anything else that day.;)

    Thanks gents. After using my 706 MKII for 10m, and 2m for a while and just listening in on the other HF bands, I wanted to be able to use my rig to its fullest.

    Thanks. I have a simple 10m 1/2 dipole (inverted V) for now. Only work 2 stations (W1AW lol, and W2GGI in FL, I made a contact on FD with a club in Chili but signal wasn't the best and never got to verify it) so far as my work schedule limits my on air time to Fridays and Saturdays and only then if I have time those days and propagation is good then I can.

    But I have some twin lead and some 16 ga wir sitting around not being used so I am searching a multiban HF homebrews

    You know I had my premission jitters lol but made sure I took enough for by some chance I had to take the exam again. I told myself I if I didn't get it in 3 trys I would study more and take it again later.

    But I almost left, but I figured I would look around and see if there was anything else I would need.
