I was mystified and mortified over getting the Ham Radio License.
I am well aware some don't, but I am one that likes rules.
So - I got on the net and searched a ham radio person in my town and the first on the list was a company out in the country selling high tech antennas.
I called and got a delightful person Jean who is a HAM and encouraged me to be one too. She had the test prep booklet ($13.00) and the name of the person who gives the test locally. I called him and he has a weekly discussion group and invited me next week. So far the process is painless. I am half way through the study book in a couple of hours. Mostly common sense stuff. Plus HAM is for more than talking; in the Technician test there are several inferences to FPV, the transmission of telemetry and the transmission of video signals. People in rocketry have a HAM license as well as people who talk to the Space Station. More uses than I could have imagined. I hope to pass the test straight away and off to FPV land. I will keep you posted on how the process for me works out.
