N0NJY de KB3HOZ. I'm a new sailor as well, and also an amateur radio operator (currently general, studying for extra). My wife and I are working on buying our first boat, too, and I'm excited to spend some time building and installing some radio equipment on it. I spend most of my time now playing with electronics and APRS gear. I think you'll find this forum full of all sorts of useful information--I know that it has been a great resource for me in just a few months of reading. Maybe I'll catch you on the maritime net someday.
