They offered me the Amateur Extra exam for free afterwards, which I failed miserably. I hadn't looked at any Extra material at all, but hey -- no harm in trying. Anyway, after taking the test, I've decided that it's something that I can definitely study for and pass. I think the current Extra pool is good until next year, so if I think I'll be able to carve out some study time this spring, I'll try to go for it soon. Otherwise, I'll wait until the new question pool is in place, and new study material is available.
Anyway, I'm pretty excited about upgrading to General. Now I just have to find a way to install an unobtrusive antenna and start trying to work some distant stations....
In other exciting news, yarbiedoll passed her Technician exam!
