Have my license, but need help getting rolling.
« on: July 09, 2020, 10:47:06 AM »
Hello,

I have a number of Baofeng's and a Yaesu VX-6, but am really confused about how to learn to operate the things. Maybe I'm too "iPhone'd" where things are much more user friendly and lost my curiosity of my childhood in the 80's.

I've looked over YouTube and a number of books, and am patiently waiting on Glen Tate's PAM radio (supposed to be out in Feb) Can anyone recommend an online source for learning, even if it's connecting with someone directly for tutorial? I thought someone on the podcast interviews was teaching people Ham radio use, but can't remember who it was. Samuel Culper maybe, but it doesn't look like it was discussed much on that episode with Jack.

Thanks for the help -

John

YouTube channel Ham Radio Crash Course has a couple of good videos on how to program and use Baofeng radios.
