Thanks for this Program

I have used CB Radio back in 1980 though 1987 or so, but now I want to get my Ham Radio license and I think this is going to give me that Boost to get it done.
I have already talk to my wife and I have radios pick out that I like .
Really want to start on the 10 Meter Band and work my way from there .
I sure do enjoy listening to this Podcast and looking forward to learn everything that I can about the Hobby.
I will be 57 years old this year and I think I’m going to enjoy this very much in my Retirement years for Sure.
Thanks again guys for all this New Information.

Very Informative!!!

I finally found the podcast I’ve been searching for! I learned so much more useful information in 10 minutes from this podcast than a hundred hours of listening to other HAM podcasts.
The audio examples and explanations are exactly what I needed!
