    Hello All,

    My name is john nemmer, sysop of this bbs, I just passed my
    technician class test at the boy scout jamboree and looking forward
    to working towards extra. I have alsways wanted to get into amateur
    radio, but things always came up. Built the misc heathkit kits,
    dabbled in electronics, run this bbbs and do a web site for my scout

    What I am looking for is info on equipment, operating tips etc.
    Don't want to get off on the wrong foot. I have a couple emails into
    some local clubs but figure they mostly shut down for the summer, so
    not to worried on no response.

    any comments would be great.

    I am hearing high praise for the Elecraft K2 transceiver. I am really impressed with the ARRL's book Ham Radio FAQ, definitely worth the money, especially for your Scouts.
