I have been a ham since 1988, originally licensed as N4UJS.
I passed my novice and technician class license exams at the Lawrenceville, GA. Hamfest on my birthday. I had alot of help from my elmer K4COF Phil Elrod (SK), that Crafty Old Fox. Upgraded to general in 1991, and tried the advanced test but never really studied. Along with the license class re-structuring, I took a class at Freed Hardeman College to make myself study for the Extra. Passed the test in 2000, and moved to Arkansas. Got the vanity call in March 2003.
