Re: Where to begin with a HAM radio?

I have a BaoFeng and I have no clue how to use it. i can tune into my local FM radio stations but other than that I cant pick up squat and I have no idea how. I gave up and threw it in a drawer somewhere..

If you're just scanning it could be skipping over the local frequencies; you really need to find out what the frequencies for the local repeaters are and monitor those. You might start here:

Re: Where to begin with a HAM radio?

Where does one start to enter the world of HAM radios? I have a brand new hand held that came with an external mic and intenna. Now what?
I'll assume you have at least a technician's license? If not, that would be the next step.
