  At the last test session (02/04/17 we received some very good responses to “What got you interested in amateur radio?”. Due to space, I’ll abbreviate some of the comments. 1 “I have been involved in radio control aircraft---and would like to try FPV (First Person View) which requires a technician license. My uncle has been a ham all his life and still has his license at 97 yrs. old.” 2 “My friend in Mobile, AL ----was telling me about everyone he talked to and shared stories with. This, paired with my interest in technical things got me interested in becoming an amateur radio operator.” 3 “I used marine sideband almost every day for voice and data for seven years. I am very interested in digital aspects of radio along with antenna design and space applications.”
