  1. Being a VE myself, my advice would be to find a test/upgrade session near you and get your "paper" upgrade. The CSCE is good for 1 year after you passed your test. In the Akron area, there are 2 groups that have VE sessions schedualed for the day after the morse requirement drops, so you go to your local session, pay your $14 and get your General upgrade. I did the same thing when they restructured in 2000. I was a tech plus and passed the General written a couple of months before. You should be able to use your new privaleges right after the session by using a /G after your callsign until the upgrade hits the FCC site or QRZ. Hope this helps. Bryan KF8G
  2. I was using my QSL cards at first, then made business sized copies of my card. But at almost 1200 finds, it's getting kinda expensive!
  3. Another "charity" Extra. I had my tech since April 1996 and upgraded to tech + a year later. I was real happy there for a number of years until the restructuring came about. I took the general test and got my paper upgrade in March 2000. Then a VE started bugging me to help him with test sessions, so I started on my extra and within 3 weeks of study, got my ticket in April 2000.
  4. My Garmin quest has 49,755 miles on it. Of course I use it in my semi when I travel. Bryan KF8G
  5. I've seen several queries about ham radio and geocaching. We recently had a fox hunt that combined the two and it really worked out great. You started out with GPS coordinates to find a micro. In the micro was the fox frequency. In that way, you can have a longer distance foxhunt when you don't think you can get a signal all the way back to the starting point. Bryan KF8G Bryan KF8G
