I’ve gotten two calls in the last week from folks interested in our amateur radio classes. I hate having to tell them that they have to wait until the next class starts, so I tell them that they should give it a try on their own and go on to list the Internet resources that are available to help them.
That got me to thinking about putting together a one-pager that gives a little background and lists these resources. The result is “Getting Started in Amateur (Ham) Radio”.
I realize, of course, that not everyone is a self-learner. For those folks, I tell them to feel free to call me with any questions they may have. I also volunteer to have them come over to my house and see my humble station.
I’d love to get your feedback on this info sheet. You can email them directly to me or just comment here. Thanks!
I’ve just updated this info sheet and have changed the name to “Getting Into Ham Radio.” It now contains the correct URLs for my new study guide and links to the ARRL website.
