The Ham Cam

By Stuart Forman-KK6VYS

A few photos from the August 12, 2018 Test Session. 


It was a proud day for me.  Less than a week after his 10th birthday, my son, Harrison, got his Technician Class license.


To prepare for the exam, Harrison attended CVARC’s class, taught by Bill Willcox-KF6JQO – Thanks Bill!  He also did a fair amount of self-study and took about a dozen practice tests.

Less than a week later, he had his call sign, KM6VGE.  He’s now a semi-regular on the local repeaters, and he’s checked into the Newbie Net AND the Tuesday night ARES/ACS Net!!!


Thanks to all who have answered his calls.  I really appreciate it…  He’s already itching to get on HF, and plans to take the General class, which starts on September 15.
