If you are not yet a licensed radio amateur, we would be happy to help you get started. Information is available from the American Radio Relay League or ARRL and their website is an excellent source on licensing requirements and Getting Started in Ham Radio. You should also look over our section on special information that explains our responsibilities as amateurs regarding communicating with non-licensed operators.
