New Extra in the Family!

This past Saturday was the local WD9BSA VE Team testing session, of which I am a proud member and Team Leader.  My son Andrew had been studying for the last several weeks to take his Extra Class Amateur Radio exam, and decided to come on down and take the test.  Since he is my son, I naturally excused myself from the test session and our other able bodied VEs took over and ran it.  Many thanks to Randy KA7BSA for being the Team Leader, Dave N9EZW, Stephen AF9SE, Jeff N9IZ, and Rick N9VDX for assisting with the test session.  All in all we tested four hams this weekend and I am proud to say they all passed their exams.  We had one upgrade from General Class to Extra Class, two made it from Technician Class to General Class, and one of our Boy Scouts came in and passed his first exam to become a Technician Class Amateur Radio Operator!  What a great weekend!
