    Thanks! Feeling kind of like a 16 yr old that has just been handed the keys. There's a whole big world out there to explore.

    Nice job what you have done is not as easy as some think it is, you deserve a pat on the back and the girl friend or wife should award you a new toy for your dedication.

    Long callsign, or shorter callsign? Decisions-decisions...

    Yep. Waiting to see what I get, then may apply for a vanity (1x3). Decisions, decisions...(which letter K,W or N, the number 4, followed by which letters???). :confused:

    Congratulations!

    I passed my tech yesterday myself. I did take the general just for giggles, but I hadn't studied for it so of course I failed as expected. Give me two weeks and I'll have that one in the bag too.

    I'm also getting an 857D. I'm going to use it both base and mobile. Just unplug it and take it back and forth. I don't want to leave it in my vehicle anyway. $800 is a small fortune to me.

    Good deal! I'm sure you'll knock it out on the next go. Looking forward to getting into the 857D and may do as you (back and forth).

    Congratulations!
