Ham radio

Baofeng uv5r so one of my presents was a ham radio and I am going to this summer or when ever study for a test to get the license.

 

If any body has a good study book that would be appreciated

In the UK the RSGB have official study books. I presume the ARRL has the same in the USA. Where are you located that will play a big part in what to study. 73 DE Mike M0SAZ.

That's cool wasn't going to assume you are in the USA. I would start with the official books that way you learn for the exam. Beyond to that there's a zillion books on ham radio. Dummies does one and it is very US centric. Plenty of content on YouTube and so on. If you just want to get on the air study to pass not to learn everything, you can pick up subjects in more detail later - over learning is a thing when studying for any exam. As Morpheus said "free your mind".

Last point I should mention how I passed. I did all three licence categories in the same year (I believe the USA has 3 too). How I did it I joined a local club. They put on classes which I did and passed each level 1st time. It's not for everyone and some clubs might be too far away or they may not host training sessions but that's how I did it anyway.

still get the official books though as any instruction should follow the official syllabus.
