Re: I wanted to get started as a Ham, where/how do I start?

I passed the technician and general class exams yesterday (Saturday). Now all I need is a radio. I'll probably get a handheld first and then a mobile rig after that. I'll let you guys know what my call sign is when I get it.

Re: Posting on Member's Only Forums

Thanks. I am pretty sure that I had member's only access when I posted this thread :D . I did not think so because I could not post in one of the chapter forums. I figured out that I just needed to request to join that forum! Everything works now, I can be a little slow...

Posting on Member's Only Forums

I am having trouble posting on member's only forums. Is there a setting or something that needs to be changed to get it to work?

Thanks

No worries. No, not yet. I'll be getting some books soon and then I'll start working on the technician license.

Your latitude and longitude: +30.4,-086.6

Your particular interest: Pursuing a ham license.

Your equipment situation: I currently do not own any equipment. I would buy a handheld first, then maybe a mobile radio.

Re: I wanted to get started as a Ham, where/how do I start?

I think I am confusing people with the whole Lower Alabama thing. I am actually in Northwest Florida (born and raised) which we endearingly call Lower Alabama for reasons obvious to anybody who has ever visited the area. It was meant to be funny, not to offend, so I apologize if it did. There is a l...

Re: I wanted to get started as a Ham, where/how do I start?

I'll keep in touch with you Landserpunk and let you know how I progress. It might be a few months before I can pick up a radio tho...

I wanted to get started as a Ham, where/how do I start?

New member from Lower Alabama here. The subject says it all. Do I buy a few books and read them first? I don't personally know any ham operators otherwise I'd start there. I want to make the best go of it at the start if I can and avoid rookie mistakes if possible. I'm looking at getting a portable ...
