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 to Grenada in early December. Not sure I will remember how to sail. Will spend the winter and early spring in the Caribbean and then head to Bermuda and the northeast US. Still trying to decide if we will bring the boat to Canada, either in 2015 or 2016.
