Join us Saturday morning @ 8:30 for a "FT8 for Digital Newcomers". That does sound better, Bill, I must say. How can one take a radio, sound card and computer and communicate worldwide? Bring a mug of Joe and find out! (And bring all of your questions for our in-house expert!)

For some reason I get their emails but I think they are a bit pricey and not focused on the Amateur community.

I think there are better choices.

Everyone is having the same problem. Your best bet at the moment is doing an online exam. Go to hamstudy.org and read up on the requirements then sign up for a session.  Let is know how it turns out.
