Re: Where to begin with a HAM radio?

I do not have a license and do not know where to even start this process. My handheld is also a Baofeng, but I will have to check for the rest of the information. It has never been opened yet.

Where to begin with a HAM radio?

I didn't want to take Mr. Cotton's topic off course so I thought I would ask here.

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?
