Please don't read my message wrong, I am not offended by your desire to become an extra. I was merely stating facts of recent times. The amateur hobby is vast there are a lot of options to satisfy everyone. Get a good radio setup and enjoy the hobby but there is no rush to advance. The extra license offers little advantage over the general, you have a bit more band space that's all. The jump to general over tech is a far greater leap. Enjoy what the hobby has to offer, I have been a ham for 30+ years now and I have enjoyed every minute.While my heart is in the right place, just saying you are going for an Extra license offends some
That might be tricky considering your antenna limitations.
