HamStudy.org offering FREE tools to help u get your ham license!Submitted by American Christian on Tue, 06/25/2013 - 13:24
Ham radio is a blast and listening is as much fun if not more than talking!
Icom is sponsoring this website where u can study FREE of charge. Designers are Richard Bateman, Rich Porter, Michael Stufflebeam, Damian Junk and Rik Line.
So, if u have an interest in getting on your local airwaves or even talking to fellow hams around the world, here's your chance.
Just heard a local ham talking about Ed Snowden this morning. It's a wonderful, wonderful medium for talking to your neighbors or keeping in touch with family!
Once you have studied at hamstudy.org, there are also practice tests at qrz.com Then, just search "ham license test sites" + "your town" and you will find there is one or more near you.
Ham radio is so neat. If u don't care for internet social sites, you just may be a ham. For a modest investment, your own radio station is up and running. Long before cell phones or the internet, there was ham radio. And, when all else fails, radio is what even government agencies go to for communications. It is a basic for anyone into emergency preparedness.
Last, though Morse Code/CW is alive and well, it is no longer required, so u or your whole family can get your license fast.
See you down the log, Lord willing!~ 73
