    They suggested that I try for the Extra as well since there was no extra (ha ha) charge to do so. Not having cracked a book on the Extra I still got 21 right out of 50.

    Now... to find some good used HF equipment. The Icom 706 has caught my eye, but it might be a while before I can fit that into the budget.

    GOOD FOR YOU! I remember when I got my general. I could not wait to get on HF. Borrowed a Drake TR4-C and loaded up an 80-meter dipole. First contact was a roaring 8 miles away!

    Best wishes and good DX
