From Teru JM2HBO
Happy New Year of 2009!!!
I pass the 2nd class radio test that I got post card this afternoon.
After 2 weeks I will get 2nd class radio license.
I am very happy this afternoon.
On the next month I will put down 5 ele mono yagi 21MHz and I will get a new  antenna.
maybe 14MHz and 21MHz 4 ele yagi (Create Company), do not order yet now.
and I will put up that antenna on the top of my tower, 16 meters high above the ground.
On the 2nd Japanese radio , all band and max. 200 watts out put.
but I do not change my transceiver, my TX is IC-746S max 10 watts.
So I want to work this TX , max 10 watts and I must practise CW. I am very poor CW ope.
Today is very happy day.
If you will be hear my voice or CW on 20 meters ,
Please hello to me. 
Good day and good weekend
