The Ham Radio Exam

I've been thinking, for quite some time, about getting a ham radio license. I've been going to hamfests (mostly for the computers) since middle school, but never knew anybody well who had an amateur radio license.

Bringing a Rolodex REX-3 back to life

About a year ago I came across an Amazon store selling what seemed like "new in box" Xircom / Rolodex REX-3 organisers. I'd always wanted one of these ever since seeing them advertised in Popular Science back in the early 2000s, so I figured for $35 I'd take a punt and see what turned up.

What eventually arrived was a complete REX-3 kit still sealed in its shrinkwrap, including the RS232 docking station, original leather wallet, software etc. This then sat on my shelf for about 12 months until I remembered I needed to buy some batteries for it.
