Extra級の最年少記録 (The youngest Amateur Extra-class licensee)

N氏が息子さんに試験を受けさせようと勉強させているようですが,できれば記録を作って欲しいなぁと思いまして,検索してみました.すると,ARRLにこんな記事が....
Nine-year-old makes Extra: Elizabeth Harper of Vinemont, Alabama, became one of the nation's youngest Amateur Extra-class licensees during the Montgomery Amateur Radio Club hamfest examination session November 9. Accompanying the nine-year-old on her upgrade journey were her parents, Anthony, NO2M, and Sondra Harper, KA4EIC. There was a lot of excitement as the volunteer examiners from the Montgomery CAVEC group graded her Element 4 answer sheet, then rechecked it twice more. A General licensee at the time of the session, Elizabeth also might hold the distinction of being the only youngster her age now working on her third ham radio call sign. When she sat for the Extra, she was KG4NAU. The FCC issued her a new sequential call sign, AG4WP, which she held for about three weeks until the FCC granted her vanity application. Elizabeth now is AK3H. Her dad, ex-WA4QQZ, also got a new call sign in December.--Steve Padgett, K4NM

2002年の記事ですが,とりあえず9才で受かると最年少記録に並ぶようです.ちなみに General 級だと7才が最年少のようです.がんばればなんとかなるんじゃないかな?

へぇ、Extraは9歳で記録なんだぁ。
うちの子は8歳なので、来年4月までにExtraになれば記録なんだね。
でも英語のしゃべれない日本人に記録抜かれたら悔しいだろうな(苦笑)

既にTEch, Genでは記録作れないけど、日本人という限定をかければ最年少にはなれそうですねhi
