... two wrong on the tech... one wrong on the General exam.

However:
only 19 right on the Extra. I have some equations to memorize for that, some more antenna theory etc... I haven't even opened the extra class study manual.

It's a good day :)

Is there a special designator given to those who pass all three tests in one sitting? or just sequential license numbers no matter what test you pass?

Congratulations! To answer your question, nothing special for passing all three in one sitting, you'd just get an Extra class callsign. Since you got up to General though, you get the same type of callsign you would if you had only passed the Tech exam (these days).

Only on 75 meters, at night, from the west coast...... :twisted:

(Don't know if they still do it, but many years back the OM on 75 could drone on for so long they had to identify 3 or 4 times in one transmission. I always thought I could make money selling bricks to place on their microphone PTT)

You get a gold star on your CSCE.

Correct, then you can apply for a you're so vain I'll bet you think this callsign is about you license.

Try listening to 3885 sometime, the Right Coast gives a unique impression.

Hell, that's what the OM around here do on the local 2 meter repeaters ! :lol:
I can't bring myself to tune in on HF for fear of earbleed.

I believe you would have been assigned a sequential 2x2 call.

Congratulations on the Gen. I did the same think, and gained the extra a month later.
