Got first ham ticket through ham radio club at Barrington High School in 1970 thanks to Peyton Lager, K9HWI. I was one of the last remaining Advanced tickets until July 13th, 2008 when I passed the element 4 Extra class exam and scored 100% on the test! Study material used was the Gordon West study guide and CD's. I Highly recomend it! Love working CW DX and six meters. I do some rag chewing with long time ham friends every tuesday morning @ 1300 UTC around 7.130 MHZ. Went to Dayton Hamvention for first time in May of 2009 with Skip KT9T, Larry K9KU & Bob K9IO. I've been there three times so far and it's always a Great experience! Favorite web sites: www.AnswersInGenesis.org www.creationtoday.org www.prophecywatchers.com www.prophecyinthenews.com I have been a dedicated beliver in Jesus Christ since age 12. I thank my Father in heaven every day for countless blessings, ham radio certainly being one of many. My personal belief is America needs to get back to her christian roots from which we have strayed. Second Chronicles 7:14 says, "If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land." and 1 John 5:11-13 says, "And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life." If you are not sure that you will make it to heaven when you die, take some serious time to look at the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Gospel simply means "good news". The good news is that God is not mad at you or the world because of our sins, John 3:15-18. The reason is He sent a substitute to pay the ransom price for our forgiveness as a free gift by grace through the sacrifice of His Son, Jesus the Christ. Yes, Jesus has already paid for your mistakes and breaking of God's laws by His life on earth, death on the cross, burial and glorious resurrection from the dead. Romans 10:9&10 says, "that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus (or Jesus as your personal Lord) and believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead , YOU WILL BE SAVED." By simply believing this simple message about Christ, you then establish a personal relationship with God as your Heavenly Father and also have the peace of mind knowing that when you exit this life and enter through the door of eternity you'll spend it in Heaven. But, God does not force Himself on us so he leaves the choice whether to accept His free gift of eternal life with him or not totally up to our free will. I sincerey hope whoever may read this makes the right choice. God Bless you and hope to CU in the pile ups. 73, John KN9K
