    First Licensed in 2017 I went to a local Hamvention with my boss who was a ham and was met with the question from the future section managers why don’t you enter to win this radio… I went to apply but told him I hadn’t gotten my license yet to which he replied “why don’t you get it and come have fun with us” My boss told him I wasn’t smart enough to get my ticket and when I corrected him he said “I will buy the book for each class you want Ie: tech, general, Extra eg,” Needless to say September (5 months later I was a tech and by February 2018 I was a extra. He lost a bet that cost him 150.00 (he paid my test fees too) after that he tried to control the entry into the hobby but I cut the string and flew the coop and now enjoy Skywarn, Dayton Hamvention with my family and the grandbaby (it will be her 3rd) and we have a bright future in ham radio.
