Ham Radio - KK7ARH

Yesterday, I took the HAM radio exams for Technician and General status, and passed both. I have to wait a few days to receive my callsign, and then I'll be able to converse upon the amateur radio waves, and partake in interesting technologies, such as APRS.
Growing up, my dad had a plethora of radios/communication devices: business radios in our vehicles, a 100' radio tower in our backyard, shortwave radios for backcountry flying, walkie talkies, handheld ham radios, CB radios, airplane radios, a radio telephone bridge, a radio telephone in his Jeep, remote audio and video transmission, and probably several other things I can't recollect. I remember visiting mountain top lookouts and testing radio connections. Many fun memories.
