After studying I finally got ready to take my test. I went to the Cabot Chapter of S.T.A.R.S. (Small Town Amateur Radio Service) meeting and afterwards I took my test for Technician. I look forward to making my first communication. Before the "interwebs" were popular I used to connect to the local BBSes and after a bit of searching online I found that people run BBSes over the radio.  I think I'm going to see if there is one in my area and if not I might start one.
