Ham

40m is better for me but i can get on 80m. I play radio during the winter from the house and bring the radio camping during the summer.
The study guides to get back into ham radio are great. I liked Gorden West, when I upgraded. 73 Jim

You can take the test and get listened again, they did completely away with the code, big mistake I think but they didn't ask me

Either band is fine, but will need to be evenings due to work schedule.

Might need to be flexible with the format and see how things work themselves out.

You can check it out by going to ARRL.org and doing a search "restore old license". I checked the license and your old call is still available if you want it. All you have to do is request a vanity call after you get a new call. There is no longer a charge for vanity calls either.
Did a little research and yep you are got the right person. I found my old license so I should be good to go. Now a little study and bone up all those new bands.

Come on Wade, just slip out to one of the planes outside the hanger and tune up in the AM. My son, KG7OF, did that when he was stationed at McCord. He worked avionics on C-141's and was talking to a guy and told him he was in an airplane and the guy said, cool, how high are you, he told him, oh, about 30 feet.

Thanks to all. This is what I like about the HAMS is there always someone ready to step up and offer a helping hand.

You will have to get a new call sign first and then apply for your old call as a vanity call (no extra cost). Check with a local VE about getting your old call back, they may be able to just reinstate your old call without a vanity application. I haven't had that situation yet so I'm not sure. The Tech license question pool is good for 2 more years so you don't have to panic if you don't want to.


You may have to drive to Topeka June 11 for their next test session since they haven't scheduled any test until October for Manhattan. You should have the books studied enough by then to ace the exam, or contact the local VE to see if he could give you a special exam session, we do it here in the Atlanta area a few times a year.

Sounds good to me. I am new here. So it might be fun to talk to others in the same fun hobbies. I do not have a antenna up for 80m. But I am active on 40m and up. 20m might also be a good band to try too. I am general class ham.
