    I’m studying and reading a lot but I just can’t understand some of this. My Lord, 45 is a bad age to start learning something.

    Can someone please help me out? I’ll compensate you in cash, wine, bourbon, ham gear or whatever... I need help.

    I live in Cherry Hill and work full time so I promise to be on time should we meet up someplace for tutoring. (30-45 mins... Library, restaurant, bar or whatever)

    I’m currently working through the Gordon West Technician book and bought two Yaesu handhelds; an FT-60r and an FT3dr.

    I didn’t wanna buy trash and I wanted a quality basic and a quality advanced. I’m taking this seriously and hope to get my 10 year old involved in a few years.

    I don’t know a single person with any knowledge of Ham Radio so I hope this works.

    Please help me out, I won’t waste your time. I need a tutor. Email Todd at hamhelpplease@gmail.com

    FOR A ELMER / MENTOR FOR HAM RADIO
    BECAUSE OF THE CORONA VIRUS.

    What is it you need help with?

    I can't meet in person but we can do email and similar. I can also point you in the direction of good videos and such, if I can't explain something myself.

    Thanks N2EY... I don’t have an exact question... I need a conversation while looking at the diagram.

    I appreciate the help but in this forum I just can’t type all this out.

    I really appreciate the offer my man...

    Just ask a question and I will explain as best I can.

    I can make diagrams and videos if that helps.

    Here's a start:

    Do you understand AC (alternating current) and frequency?

    I’m in Mt Laurel, I’ll help you if I can. I haven’t been active in a long time, but the basics haven’t changed.

    No sir... The only thing I know about AC is that it ain't DC

    LOL!!!!!!

    OK, I'll start there.

    Do you understand DC, voltage and current?
