In case you do not remember the exam, here it is:
Lurching Toward General
I can sympathize! I had my encounter with the FCC in 1976 and while I was considerably older than the kid in the story, I felt about the same!

Seeing my name on that list was one of the biggest charges I have had in my life. I didn't see "Lurch" there but there were plenty of white shirts, ties and pocket protectors. I went in a Novice and came out Advanced. I just kept taking tests until I failed.

Have FUN!
