A ticket? Yes, but the nice kind. “Ticket” is the term amateur radio operators call their license. My brother and I went to take our tests today. We both passed the Technician class test, and he passed the General class test. I was only planning to take the Technician test, but they suggested that I try the General test because it wouldn’t cost any more. I hadn’t studied for it, so I missed a little less than half of the questions. :/

My brother had planned and studied for the general test, and passed it, and went on to try (because they said, “Why not?”) the Extra test. He did fairly well, but not well enough. :) So we both came home happy! We’re hams now—rather, we will be once we receive our licenses. I wonder what my call sign will be…
