Warning of impending peril to your waves

Saturday, 26th September 2015

I passed my general amateur operators certificate exam on Thursday night, so I have a certificate that claims that I'm competent to operate a radio in the amateur bands. Heh.

The equivalent qualification in the USA has about three different exams, so in contrast it is amazingly easy to get in NZ.

I Can't decide if it's good to eliminate all the pointless red tape or dangerous to let folks who barely know which direction the antenna fires the radio waves loose in the bands. I guess it is the Kiwi way.
