Who's the Lucky One?

I received one of the nicest gifts I have ever received. Check it out:

Pretty cool right? It is an Icom IC-737 Transceiver.

Okay, I admit is a big deal to me, but might not be for anyone not interested in being an Amateur Radio Operator. I am currently studying for my Amateur Radio with Basic Qualification (honours) certificate. Passing with a mark above 80% provides honours, which in turn, allows an operator to use bands below 30MHz. This IC-737 is ideal for this. Admittedly, it as an old unit, but it works well and will definitely do what I need.

Now it is time for me to complete self study, pass the test with at least 80%, and gather equipment such as a power supply, etc. to begin enjoying the hobby.
