Have you picked up your first radio yet and if so, what are you using?
Mag Mount Mobile antenna to the middle of the MH roof, run coax into home, adapt coax to where the duck antenna screws in.
OR, do what I did and simply go outside and op. I outgrew Tech in a month, found a General test date and crammed for it.
HF is for me, The Tech ticket does however hold lots of good HF freq privilege for those who learn Morse and do CW, digital as well.
Thanks for the tip! I finally found me a contact and he got me signed up for the exam a little closer to home so, testing on the 18th of Jan. Also, he is going to help me find someone who might be willing to Elmer me.
I'm new to the hobby and have been interested for years, I have two friends that have been ham operators for years and there willing to help me out learning. I have a study guide and hopefully will take my Tech exam soon. Today I bought a Yaesu FT70RT. I was told it would be a good radio to learn. At this moment I'm intimidated with all I need to learn but I love new challenges even being an old guy.. 73 all
I'm another newbie to the hobby. I've had an interest for years, I have two friends willing to take me under their wings, they've been ham operators for years. I got my study guide and been reading it, the other day I took a sample tech test and got a 18/35 for my first time without much study. Today I bought a Yaesu FT70DR for my first radio. There's ALOT to learn but I love a challenge, semi retired so I got a lot of time to devote..
