Thank you for looking up my call information. I use my middle name, John, for my handle.
Update: May 5,2012 passed Extra Class exam at Deerfield,NH "Near Fest". Upgraded after 45 years! Now a reason to celebrate "Cinco de Mayo".
In 1963 as a freshman at the University of Dayton with the help of Hank Fallek (ex WA2YDW), I got my Technican license as WB2JEJ. A year latter I took the trip to the FCC office in NYC. Nerviously, I sat down in front of the FCC examiner to take the dreaded 13 WPM CW code test for the general class upgrade (Phew, that was a stressful 5 minutes!!). Fortunately, I pulled together a minute of solid copy and then passed the written exam. A subsequent 1967 trip to the NYC FCC office with Tom Devine, WB2ALJ, was successful for the Advanced Class upgrade. I hope the above brings a smile to those who made "the journey" to the FCC office for their ham license test. The memory is more enjoyable than the actual event! I have operated from Pelham, NH QTH since 1969.
