I'd also say that if you look around your area, you should be able to locate a VEC or Volunteer Exam Coordinator. A VEC will most likely be glad to help you get involved and perhaps get you motivated to get your license. For the cost of a scanner, you can easily find a small HT 2 meter radio that is a really great way to start once you have your license. Since they removed the morse code requirements from the license, it's not a difficult test to pass with a modest bit of studying. Once you get involved you'll be amazed at how addicting it can be to try out different aspects in amateur radio. It can be a really expensive hobby, but with a little creativity, you can get started in it rather cheap. When I first started, back around '93, I had a little 40 meter low power CW (morse code) transciever and I talked to people all over the world with that thing... I built the antenna myself and the radio cost me about $35 from a swap meet.
So.. instead of being non-hammy, get hammy!
