Obtaining my amateur radio license was something I wanted to do for a very long time and I finally pulled the trigger on it at the urging of one of my friends. Two weeks of evening-only study and I passed my Technician exam. Much thanks to the VE’s at the Richmond Amateur Radio Club and the practice exams available here: http://aa9pw.com/radio/.
