Short story short. Terry got his amateur radio license.
Of course, Terry being Terry, he studied hard and went for the ‘General’ level which is the middle of the three levels. (As a reminder, I went for and passed the lowest level – Technician).
Pretty proud of my son and its great to share hobbies with him.
Here is a shot of him messing about with his new software radio on the back of his phone. Its a pretty sweet setup.
For about a year Terry has been doing the odd bit of coding for me and 2 guys in Arizona. They are hams and love to welcome new hams to the hobby by helping out with some gear.
They sent Terry a radio to get him started.
So, in short, he is pretty much set up and is having a blast listening and talking with people on the local repeaters.
