No pesky Morse code requirement anymore. I could copy 20 words a minute but I could not write that fast at the same time. I had to wait for the code speed to drop so I could get my extra. Now the code is completely gone as a requirement but still useful if you know it.
Yea, I was up to the 20 wpm extra requirement and could have passed the exam with a little study, but that was in high school and my interest soon turned to girls and the ham thing went to the weigh side.
Where do you go to take the exam now? I am located an hour away from Honolulu.
BTW- just took the practice exam and only got a 67%- FAILED. A lot of the frequency alocations have changed since I got my license.
