Canadian Ham

I was able to take both the Canadian Amateur Radio Basic and Advanced certification tests this morning, and much to my surprise, managed to pass both of them.

I was pretty sure I’d pass the Basic test with at least Honours (80%+). The Advanced test I was a little less optimistic about since I didn’t have as much time to prepare for it as I had wanted. Fortunately I managed to score high enough to pass both tests, so now I have my Basic with Honours and Advanced qualifications!

Less than 30 minutes after the examiner left, I was already able to apply for my call sign through the Industry Canada website (wasn’t expecting to be able to do that for another day or two based on what the examiner told me). Hopefully that will go through by the weekend and then I’ll be official!

Update: My new Canadian call sign is active! VA6BUG
