I always update my details and new info at QRZ first.

This all started out with a visit to a ham convention in the Inland Empire North East of Los Angeles California Fair Grounds 1988(20Yo). I got the bug! LOL! I have seen some older guys playing with radios and showing the young bucks that were curious enough to stop by their booth. What they were achieving with a Licence and a Dual-band radio! At that time while visiting this booth I must have stayed some 4 hours there. That was not my plan for the day visiting the fair! At 20yo I planned on spending the day eating Fair food and getting some dangerous rides in for the day. To regress, I almost blew my day there at the booth! Years later I met a friend of a friend and he kept at it. Nagging, Bugging me to get my ticket! Thanks, Allen (KD9EPZ)! I am not kidding. This guy would not let up after years and many years of friendship!

So he got the fire under lit under me one day over the phone and he had a DMR contact of his. Al mentions I'm in Boise Idaho. The contact responds hey so am I. So I contact this guy over email and we get to chatting on a lengthy phone conversation. He re-directs me to a website of a local 2m repeater (WA9WSJ) here in Boise. You know I contacted many clubs to get some info on classes to get the whole thing started! None except this one club BCARC responded! I asked if and how I can get my ticket and are there Tech classes aval ANYTIME! I was desperate! So his wife (KE7HHW) responds to my email and tells me no not yet. Nail bitting ensures more this time. Diane of KE7HHW tells me over email. YES! There will be one soon. So I say okay, I'll stay in contact. Then 4 weeks pass up and I forget all about it! I said to myself all-hell with it! Meanwhile, Al KD9EPZ naggs away! Diane (KE7HHW)contacts me again and notes we are starting a Tech class in a week from now! HOWALULA!! She also mentions I need Gordons West's book WB6NOA (Gordo) 2018-2022 Technician Class FCC element 2 Amateur Radio License Prep book. So after 12 classes in 6 weeks and 6 wrong, the rest is history. 73 Vince
