What is the best course for getting new Ham license? - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Hi guys. I am finally going to get my Ham license. What do you veterans of the Amateur world recommend for studying for the tests? There are lots of courses out there, but any tips on the best for the money (or free) would be apprecaited. Thanks.

Oh also what would be a good entry level radio that will allos for advancement to higher levels? I live on the outskirts of Boston now in a neighborhood that probably would not like a big tower or antenna. What's good for a "contained" environment?

The ARRL.org website is the best source for all the study materials you need. Just about anything they endorse by selling will be good. Where are you located in Boston?
