My wife (KC5QJQ) and myself (KC5OTL) ave been licenced since 1994.  What we don't do any more, is subscribe to ARRL, QST and QEX - These days, I'd prefer to put my money into something else...

No licence here. No plans to study for now - maybe down the road. Just getting aquainted with the Ham-speak, and other terminology at this time.

At this early stage of my learning, I am most excited about the learning Morse Code. Not sure if I will accomplish that, but that is what partly attracted me to radios/Ham.
