Ham Member Lookups: 599

 

I am a blessed husband and father of 3 wonderful kids.  My son, Elijah (N7RME) is 17, daughter Jadyn is 16 and daughter Olivia is 14.  I have been married to my beautiful wife Sharina since June of 1994.

My dad, (WQ7C) has been a ham for almost as long as I can remember.  I grew up hearing my dad calling CQ late into the night from my bed, as we lived in a small house and his "shack" was  a corner of my bedroom.

I got my license in the mid 90's and started off as KC7PPE, then in a few years upgraded to General and became K7RIP.

Well, life happened, career and kids, I put ham radio on the side.  Eventually let my license completly expire.

A while back, my son was asking me about ham radio and expressed an interest.  I found out if I took the Technician test, I could be reinstated to the General Class.  So, I read the book and took practice tests from my phone for a couple of weeks and both my son and I took our Technican test.  Bam, we both passed.  I was a General and he was a Technician.  I found out someone took my vanity call sign and was disappointed, but found out N7RIP was available and applied and was granted my current call sign. 

My son did not like the idea of me being one up on him and having access for voice on HF.  Within a couple of weeks, he studied and passed his General Class, so now he makes sure to remind me we are both equals now.smiley  Come fall and winter, I plan on studying my Extra Class.  I don't think he will move on past General Hi Hi.

I also still remind him, I had to know code originally.cheeky
