    They will likely offer all 3 levels at each venue.

    But Chris, I would wait, get your Full/Advance and do Reciprocal. I didn't only as I run Hamtests so felt it only fair to have sat all the exams to be able to offer comment on them.

    Hope this Helps.
    I know back in 2005, I enquired about a reciprocal licence for another Ham (a GI4) who was going to California for a few weeks, and Gordo West replied and said that if you want a US licece you have to do the US Exams. Maybe things have changed since then.

    I just passed Tech and General yesterday, so no call for a week or so.
    I also posted more on the exam forum.

    Recently Licensed myself as well. US Technician and General on same day.

    Callsign issued was KD8QDY.

    Applied immediately for my grandfathers old call and received weeks later

    I am now N8GRQ

    I am currently studying for my US Amateur Extra and should get that here by July 16th or sooner if I start grasping the material better. My Scientific Calculator is getting a workout.

    Passed Tech this evening, only 2 answers wrong. Was thinking of also taking General but I felt I would have no benefit or ability to use it for a while.

    KG7NDC Call Sign.

    I'm considering a vanity call sign because apparently the Federally issued one doesn't roll off my tongue what with my southern drawl and Texas twang and all.

    You're suppose have an Arizona drawl .. a Texan misplaced in Arizona but it seems you're a Cowboy at heart. I kept looking at your call letters and all I could come up with is, King George Seven Notta Decent Call .... LOL

    I had an opportunity perhaps 15 years ago to get a vanity call letters of my initials, then thought about it and blew it off. I hated my call letters when they were first issued in October, 1968 but over the years I became more use to them especially with the ham community screwing them up as they became a tongue twister on voice communications ... Oh well that's life.
