Got my 'ticket'

Now I'm a licensed ham, technician class. The VEC offered for me to take a general license exam since I only missed one question on the test. Which, let's face it, is not that difficult... the questions are not that hard. In retrospect, I should have taken the general class exam! Not that it really matters -- I really don't see myself DX'ing with somebody from Southwestern Vietnam or some other place like that. All I really care about is being able to call for help on my Yaesu FT250R if I am seriously hurt out in the wilderness. Should get my call sign by Wednesday next week, and I'll be good to go!
