Being the Tri-City Amateur Radio Club, the number three has a bit of special meaning. When Ray AI6RN, registered for this months exam session three days before it was to take place and he wanted to take all three exams, I was a bit excited!
This would be the club’s first examinee who ever attempted to go from zero to ham-hero in one shot.
When Ray turned in his Technician exam we smiled when grading as he had gotten a perfect score. When he handed in his General exam, we grinned when we found that he again scored perfectly.
You can only imagine the look on our faces as we finished grading his Extra exam and didn’t need to make a single mark on his answer sheet. Ray had just pitched a perfect game… he aced all three exams in a single session! Truly an impressive feat that will be talked about for years to come!
Ray, the entire Tri-City Amateur Radio Club VE Team wishes you a well-deserved congratulation! We appreciate you allowing us to share your story and giving us something to inspire all other ham hopefuls with!
