Prospective Hams, or newly licensed Amateur Radio Operators might appreciate a helping-hand exploring what the ham radio hobby offers, putting together a working ham station or getting on-the-air.
If you are in that situation and if you would like someone to bounce questions off, or to show you the ropes, then please accept our invitation.
Our meeting schedule, location, and agenda appears on the Events page.
Additional information that prospective or newly licensed Ham Radio Operators may find helpful appears in the Resources page.
Look for the How Do I… section.
