After just getting my ticket back in April, and after about the past 5-6 months of self study, just from the book, I passed my Element 3 tonight. I missed from what they told me was four, but no idea which ones. I am now KD0HMI/AG -- whoo whoo, now I just have to get on HF, and learn how to listen. Last year when I was on GOTA during Field Day, I had a very hard time hearing QSLs. Looks like we have another General here on the boards.
