    I've been a VE for a few years now. I got my Tech in May of 2015, Extra (and VE) in 2017 and have been teaching HAM since 2017 as well. I was on the Board for the local club for 3 years as VP and then President for two of the three. I've been the lead instructor since late 2019 and I've taught 5% of all the HAMS in the county. Finished my last class session for the current crop on Saturday and will be testing next Saturday.
    Our bus is still in the preparation stage.... deleting windows and reskinning (1 side done), rebuilding one of the battery boxes, getting the chassis electrical squared away (100's of feet of wires and cables pulled, etc. We're getting close to interior work time.....YAY

    I was A VE for a while. I enjoyed it but life happened and I didn’t have the time. As of March 2023, I am living in the bus (in my driveway) and renting my house to my grandson and his family.

    The hatch is from a salvaged sailboat I found on EBay for $100. I had to clean it up and replace the 1/2 thick plexiglass which cost another $100. Then I had to build a base from PVC board so I could accommodate the curve of the roof. That took a little bit of creative work but I figured the PVC board would never rot and was pretty easy to shave a curve out of .

    Hello I was reading about your future solar install and would love to see any information, pictures when you do your solar set up. I have a very similar bus to yours so I'll be following your progress. I also like your signature I have the same thing over my desk at work " We the unwilling led by the unknowing are doing the impossible for the ungrateful, we have done so much for so long with so little we are now qualified to do anything with nothing"
