Getting a Ham license
So, a few years ago I looked into getting a ham license, taking the course, passing the test, getting the equipment, starting out from scratch.
But, it just looked like a lot of immense work that I wasn't sure would pay off in the end.
Can someone here refer me to a really good way to get a good education on this (and I don't mean "Radio Ham for Dummies" book) that will lay this all out in a sensible manner, and guide me through what I need to do, and what equipment I need to acquire, and the basic ins and outs?
Seriously, if you guys want to recruit people into this skill set, it needs to be straightforward and relatively easy to assimilate, or you will continue to turn off people that are interested, if it is perpetuated as some arcane, exclusive club that only nerds need apply to.
Thanks for all your help in advance.
