Just passed my HAM test

I had not done a test that required any studying for many years but had to put in quite a bit of studying to pass my HAM test. Pleased that that is out of the way. Wanted it/needed it because a lot of the cruiser nets in the Pacific use HAM frequencies rather than regular SSB ones. Interestingly I also found out that there is a Mississauga Maritime Net. Mississauga is the Toronto suburb where we have been living during hurricane season further south. Apparently the people on this net are very keen to provide any assistance they can for cruising boats.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
