I personally am going for my Ham license. I figure it is worth it since you only pay $15.00 to take the test, and the license is good for some 10 years.

The price for a license isnt bad at all and is well worth it, both having a cb or HAM setup would double your efforts of getting knowledge from others, emergency situations and plan just getting in contact with others.

I have been a Ham radio operator for quit some time KC8RQH, and I think it is a vitale way to communicate with others when SHTF. I would love to see a lot of others get their ham ticket.

Hello allopbtaining a ham radio license is not t difficult at all.The Tech license is the entry license .You can purchase a study guide at most larger books shops.Spend al ittle time reading it and pass you can pass the test no problem.I got my Tech license in Feb o8 and than upgraded to my General license a few months later.You should be able to locate a ham radio club in your area.Most are very friendly people.And will welcome you into the hobby.Maybe you could find a Elmer,Which is a person that has beeni nto the hobbby for a while.And can teach you about the equipent set up ect.
