Congrats to Michael on passing the test

I've just received a phone call from my friend Michael Nolan in Kilkenny who has passed his amateur radio test at last. Well done Michael.

He scored 63% in Section A, 73% in Section B and 60% in Section C, with a 60% mark required in each section to pass.

Michael is proof of the old mantra that - "if at first you don't succeed, try, try again". He sat and failed the test in June 2009 and again in October 2009. But he was determined to get there and was one of just nine candidates to sit the test a couple of weeks ago in the Comreg offices in Dublin.

Well done again Michael. I look forward to hearing what your new callsign is (I'm guessing it will be EI9G something B, possibly EI9GAB or EI9GBB or EI9GCB) and also I'm very much looking forward to working you on 80 metres!

Have a drink on me!
