I'm confused.  'Who is WE'.

Don't like the way you got your ticket?  Turn it in.  They'll accept it.

Sorry that Society decided to GIVE one away to you.

I doubt the old test would improve your electronic knowledge.  Get a few 
old boat anchors, restore them, and put them on the air.

Does more for the knowledge!

I DO travel to Europe, spend upward of seven months a year over there.

If you don't like the message - HIT DELETE.  Almost as good as a VFO!
