Re: Where to begin with a HAM radio?

I've really enjoyed meeting with the Volunteer Examiners and testing here:
http://austinhams.org/hamtests
ARRL/AARC Session - 1st or 2nd Saturday at Bethany United Methodist Church

Regularly scheduled amateur radio exam sessions at Bethany United Methodist Church, Disciple Bldg, Rm 203/204. 10010 Anderson Mill Rd, Austin TX 78750

$15 fee. Exams are held monthly, usually on the 1st Saturday of the month at 2:00pm. However, please visit the ARRL link above to verify exam date/time as the day may change due to holidays. You can also download the latest AARCover newsletter and check the last page for the next couple of exam sessions.

Re: Where to begin with a HAM radio?

73's, John here. KF5ZMD
My successful methods to passing each test was to take the practice tests at http://aa9pw.com/radio/ until I felt confident I could pass in a classroom setting. It was several months. I believe highland lakes ARC hosts test sometimes? I'm on Lake Travis, looking forward to hearing you on the air.

Thanks!
I'll probably get a HF rig at the Belton Hamfest in a few weeks.
