Last year I organized a VE testing session on Sunday and got about a dozen people licensed as amateur radio operators. Is there interest in doing it again this year?
Get a nod from RussR and I can make a forum for this as an event and move this thread into that space for planning and discussion.
(If in a Skybox, a nod from Grifter, assuming he's still the Skybox guy) and I can make a forum for it too.
What else am i going to do on the plane for 8 hours other than study.
wine, women, and song... all three can make a long flight go a lot more pleasantly. the trick for each one, respectively, is to...
1. try to bring along some of your own or take an Ambien if you're not really into flying and just want to be knocked out for the duration.
2. use restrooms where the main entrance is around a corner slightly and not visible to passengers, or time it so that you slip into the rear restroom when flight attendants are performing food-service duties.
3. get comfy headphones that you don't mind wearing for extended periods. while many folk like the compact-ness of in-ear buds, for flights it's hard to top a set of noise-canceling cans such as those made by Bose or crazy audiophile ones by Shure or Sennheiser. (note... while googling to make sure i spelled things correctly, i came across this pretty great review site)
so there you go... three things to occupy you on a flight that are much more fun than studying. heh, but if you just have to take the Ham exam, well... you can get your sex and drugs and rock n' roll at the con itself, i suppose.
"I'll admit I had an OiNK account and frequented it quite often… What made OiNK a great place was that it was like the world's greatest record store… iTunes kind of feels like Sam Goody to me. I don't feel cool when I go there. I'm tired of seeing John Mayer's face pop up. I feel like I'm being hustled when I visit there, and I don't think their product is that great. DRM, low bit rate, etc... OiNK it existed because it filled a void of what people want." - Trent Reznor
