Passed my foundation ham licence exam this morning! 📻 Wasn’t pleasant. I was hoping for a lot more maths and electronics questions but it was all rules and regs and craftily worded questions on them. Anyway, did it. Now to figure out what I’m actually going to do with it once it arrives.

My friend passed his a couple of months ago and has just bought a nice radio, power supply and antenna. I’ve made a note of what he has and will see how he gets on with it. I just have a little handheld radio for now, which does pick up the local repeater but not sure anyone would hear me with the tiny antenna it has.

I get to pick my foundation callsign, it’ll be MM7xxx where xxx is what I can chose. Lots are already taken but maybe there’s something relevant that I can think of.
