Amateur For Beginner’s
To Begin your start of Amateur radio, I suggest you look for a local amateur radio club in the area where you live and then join it. You may start by using google search. Once you are a member of a amateur radio club ask fellow members if the club has beginner’s classes and ask around the club to see if anyone will teach you about this Awesome Hobby !
