ham operator license
 
Want to become a Ham Radio Operator. I have the book and I know what I should do to take the test for it. I go to my local operator meetings every month etc etc. Now this is my dilema.

I'm more of a Visual learner. There is a visual way to learn or study for the Tech test? If any let me know please. Thanks in advance.

Ham radio is a voice sorta thing, if visual is your thing then this might not be the hobby for you:confused:

Ok.. I think I know what you are saying.. As far as hooking up and matching antennae ? Frequency settings and ranges? Morse code?

Well, first of all most of the knowledge you need is only by books. Read while you are doing it.. Worked for me..

Been there done that.. Lots of fun and create friends around the world verbally. On the down side, Very expensive !..

And you thought firearms can get costly ?..hehe...Good luck and have fun..

There were a bunch of hits for ham radio. :) Talk hard.

Quick derail, as I know absolutely nothing about this, but am now intrigued.

Why? What is the purpose today of Ham radio?

And it's licensed?

And what is expensive?

Tell me more.:confused:

^^^ It would be handy if the interweb went offline.

Benning Boy 11-03-2009 06:53 PM

I agree, but there must be more to it. Why do you Ham guys do it? What am I missing?
