The Holland ARC VE team held a test session Saturday morning at the
fire station. We have some very nice news.
John, "I can study on my Ipod while tooling down the Interstate", Hanse,
KC8QDE took and passed his Extra.
Not to be out done, Jim, "I already have my state PE license, this is
easy" Heyl, N8QMD took and passed his Extra.
Additionally, from our Extra Class class, we get to congratulate:
Jim Beaudoin, N8UMP for passing his Extra. Jim's dad, Doug, KT8R was
there and proud.
Nate Silva, KD8NPC also passed the Extra. Rumor time: look for a new
call from him.
And in the "this is really cool" department, we had a walk-in
tester, Jim Williams from Wayland. He took and passed the tech. He works
at JCI and told me that he would like to build a radio, and that he
needed the license for that. This is one person to keep an eye on.
Congrats to all, and a special thank you to the VE team, headed up
by Rick, N8GGO, with help from Dave, WA8RSA, Jim, KC8KE, Tom, KD8DEG,
Mike N8XPQ, Sheila, K8AJ and some other guy.
