I'd just like to thank the site organizers and the regular posters for their contributions to this site. I am learning so much from reading the threads here (including how little I know about amateur radio in general).

If there is one book/site/place you would send someone who is a rank novice who wants to learn more about amateur radio, what would it be?

 

Thanks!

Ken

I would echo Ken's post, lot's of decent folks, great info.

 

Ken I have spent a lot of time at Radio Reference's forums, as well as for ham qrz.com hamsexy.com and eham.net.

 

For technical/geeky stuff like posted radio reference, batlabs (what a place), repeater builder and communications.support, though more geared towards /\/\otorola gear (my new addiction).

Ken, for amateur radio related information, don't forget the ARRL site, but do note that their publications can sometimes be purchased at lower prices through Amazon.

 

And if you haven't seen it yet, be sure to check out the Ham Nation shows on TWiT TV.

 

Regards,

 

Frank.

You're very welcome. Ham Nation is a part of the ever-expanding Leo Laporte NetCast Network.

 

By the way, if you like the ARRL Web site, the RSGB site may also be of interest. Like the ARRL, they offer some very useful publications.

 

Frank.

This is probably the BEST resource for GMRS.. period.  I love the fact that only licensees have access here... It assures only those with the best interests of the service are here.

 

For amateurs, I echo the thoughts above.... but there, sometimes, you have to pick and choose thru a lot of stuff :)

depends on what aspect of the Hobby, I love MyGMRS I also learn much from, Radio reference, and solar panel talk. all are books and books worth of important information, But MyGMRS  is by far the most gentlemen like of them all.
