... I'd like to pass in on the first try since exams are only once a year in our place.... :D

I've actually been on 40 and 15 meters since I got my tech(our equivalent) which are the HF privileges for tech here... :)

I don't think many people have a lot of knowledge about the difference between the way the FCC or the RAC regulates and conducts exams, as compared to your NTC.

There is a LOT of math in your exams, and as you say, they are not proctored/available with the frequency they are here.

you might want to try 7.177 when the band is open to N America

A year after getting my tech, I finally took my general class exams. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for the results which in our neck of the woods will take a month. I'd like to pass in on the first try since exams are only once a year in our place. I hope to pass so I can operate on 20 meters. :D
Best of luck, and I hope you pass. I'm still kicking myself for waiting so long to get Tech, then General. Best thing I ever did!

73,
Brett

I've actually worked WE6DX, Billy from San Diego on 7.177. That was with my full size dipole though. I wasn't able to join the group last night but they're saying now that propagation to N America was fair last night.

Our local ragchew group hangs out at 7.173 so we can just slide up without retuning. :)
