A little about me, my name is Robert and I am 38 years old and I have been a ham for 5 years. I got into radio in 2013, playing around with RTL-SDR‘s and in January of 2014 I got a BaoFeng UV-5R+. After using my radio more as a scanner I decided I need to start studying for my technician license. In early 2015, I started the much longer process then it needed to be to study for my technician test. On 9/12/15 I passed my technician test and received my initial callsign on 9/25/15 (which was KE0FWW). On 7/21/16 I requested a vanity call sign of K0RAP, and on 8/9/16 it was approved.
