Re: Ham License Advice

Find a local amateur radio club, visit with them. They will help and assist you getting your license. I, like you, looked into my license for using HF on my boat.Bought the a few study guides and went to a local club, got hooked up with some locals and am now a General class operator. Picked up Tech in October and General a week ago. Looking back I probably could have got both same day. Go to ARRL. org to find a club in your area. One thing I found was the 2m/VHF, 144-148Mhz, is used quite a bit here in Hampton Roads and around Chesapeake cruising areas. A great way of communicating and finding out local knowledge while cruising the chesapeake. Good Luck
