Anyone interested in getting your ham license: I suggest that you start by taking the practice exam for Technician Class on www.qrz.com every day for 30 days. If you do that every day for 30 days, you can pass the written test. You can build code speed by downloading Morse code files from www.arrl.net. You can find the code described from numerous other sites. Find a Volunteer Examiner (VE) through a website or your local ham club to give you the exam and you are a new ham radio operator. Not difficult at all and LOTS of fun for the rest of your life.
