Another Ham in the Family

Just a short note: DS12 has passed his ARRL Technician's course and is now a licensed Amateur Radio Operator (HAM). He has been studying with my father for the past 12 weeks and has taken the practice test about 3 dozen times. This test is not easy - it requires a significant understanding of science and technology and it is not something to be attempted lightly. The test was given at DeVry by licensed examiners. Well, he passed it and missed only 4 questions (out of 35). We are all overjoyed as DS is the only HAM in the family beside my father (Papa is very proud of him!)
