It’s official – I’m a ham. I’ve been accused of it for years, and now you’ve all been proven right.
I took the technician class amateur radio exam on February 4th, and aced it. 100%! My call sign (KF7TZO) was granted on February 13th. You will probably find me on the 2 meter band most of the time. Watch for me on aprs.fi, too.
Sometime in the nearish future, we’re going to be launching a weather balloon, and tracking it via APRS, which is a packet technology that uses amateur radio frequencies. There will definitely be more to come on that project.
