It's been a long haul to be sure. When we finally tie the ribbons on the series, it will be over 60 audio lectures, some of them well over an hour long. Next week we begin the final study topic, which is on safety. Maybe it's a good thing this subject comes last, because if people saw all of the different ways one could get injured working with radio, they might think twice about it and take up stamp collecting!
