Today I got my amateur radio Technician License.1 🎉
The technician license is the entry level license; there are two other license levels higher than it: general and amateur extra.2
Because my license is entry level license, I’ve only got a limited set of permitted frequencies I can use. I think I’ll start studying for the general to expand upon that.
I’ve started my search to look for my first radio. I didn’t do any research ahead of time, but luckily there’s articles and groups online that have thoughts (totally open to thoughts).
I won’t be able to transmit until the FCC officially recognizes my achievement and assigns me a callsign. That’s supposed to happen by Tuesday or Friday of next week. We’ll see how long that takes.3
So, yeah. This is fun. We’ll see where this takes me.
