    Any out there with young kids that are Hams?

    My 11 year old son is showing an interest in the hobby. (both the wife and I are licensed) It's been a long time since I bought a novice/tech study book.

    What's the best one for kids to use?

    A co-worker who got her ticket a few months ago just gave me her copy of "Now You're Talking"

    Is there a better book or a web site for studying?

    Now You're Talking is the text that we use to teach prospective hams. In the last class we had two youngsters, ages 8 and 10 pass the Tech exam. They did just fine. Lots of folks augment their study by taking the practice exams on QRZ.com. Ususally with kids it a good idea to have someone available to explain many of the concepts of radio to them. I doubt that at that age they've been exposed to much advanced science. NYT does a fair job of explaining but an 'elmer' is always helpful...
