My 14 year old son was bitten by the radio bug last year.

He took his exam for Technician last week and passed! No callsign yet - from what i've read its been taking 1.5 to 2 weeks before calls are showing up in the FCC database via the ARRL VEC.

He's inspired me to get back into ham radio after a long absence. So much so that i'm going to take the test for General on February 13th!

Thanks everyone!

He actually got interested in his own, watching me listen to scanners, use commercial two way radios, etc. He decided to get his Tech ticket completely on his own.

I'm really proud of him!

Outstanding!

Ham radio needs the younger generation to keep the hobby alive

Congrats! I'm 14 too. Tell him to get going on the general as well :)

I have my general (working on the extra) and am an avid DXer and contester. The world of DX was what really got me inspiered to get my ticket!
