Now that I am heavily involved with out cities CERT, it was time to upgrade my technician license. WHile living in an apartment prevents me from using outdoor antenna's, I wanted to get my General license. So three weeks ago, I took the test and passed ! Now I'm a big boy :)

PCTEK, congrats on your General.

Not to knock the Tech license and holders of same, but there's a lot bigger playground out there when you get the General ticket. Have fun.

Congrats on the upgrade! I lived in an apartment as a ham for many years and was very active on HF as an Advanced Class (which no longer exists). So don't look at being an apartment dweller as a hindrance to getting on HF. Here are some ideas I found by Googling the phrase "Ham antennas for apartment dwellers":

Limited Space and Indoor Antennas

Again, congrats on the upgrade! Hope to work you on HF one day from your apartment!

Congrats!
Just passed the Tech and General last weekend myself.
Even though I know it will take a week or two I am checking the FCC database daily.
