Learn proven steps and strategies on how to start your ham radio and get a license to operate your radio!
Operating a ham radio is fun, and most people's interest in amateur radios are driven by the fun aspect of it. Aside from the excitement, amateur radio could be very helpful in emergency situations, especially when other services are unavailable. A typical example of an emergency case is the 1992 Hurricane Andrew that hit South Florida. It destroyed the common means of communication; its antennas, utility grid, and cellular networks were all destroyed leaving victims almost helpless. At that time, amateur radio was the only source of communication and some payphones that were connected with underground lines. They are also used for many other community services.
Radio amateurs around the world provide a valuable community service.
This audiobook will teach you how to operate one, tune to the right frequency, when to tune, how to make consistent contacts, and much, much more.

Hercule Poirot recalled an earlier outburst by a fellow passenger: "I'd like to put my dear little pistol against her head and just press the trigger." Yet in this exotic setting nothing is ever quite what it seems.
