Ham Radio Exams are Back Online


Sometimes intersecting interests are the ones that get you moving:  How homeschooling saved the radio star!


This blog clearly started out as more of a ham radio site.  There are a variety of indicators.  My call sign's in the masthead, The logo by Dash The DogFaced Ham includes a picture I took of an old Westinghouse gauge I found in the basement of the New Yorker while I was setting up a special even station to raise awareness for the restoration of Tesla's last laboratory, Wardenclyffe.  By the way, the logo and masthead will probably change soon to reflect the blog's new focus: unschooling, but I'm getting ahead of myself.

Life is full of variety though, and so as the years progressed, the blog focused more on physics as I made my soiree into and then back out of a PhD physics program.  Recently, the blog has changed focus again, and contains posts on my new favorite thing to write about homeschooling, and more specifically, unschooling.  In the meantime, the ham radio practice exams that use to live here in the blog, and that have since relocated to http://copaseticflows.appspot.com/hamtest stopped working.  Busy with many, many other things I haven't made the time to fix them, but then my interests happened to intersect.  A homeschooling family contacted me to let me know they were studying for their ham radio exams, and would love to use the practice exams that are linked from a homeschooling blog they read, namely mine.

Here we are a few days later, and good news!  The practice exams are back up and running!  Have fun with them, and please let me know if anything can be improved.
