I'm an Amateur Radio enthusiast from way back; mostly CB and 10 meters. I have a couple of hand-held Baofengs that I want to use for family communications and as a backup link in case of emergencies.
I want to get my Federal number and technician license so that I'm legal.
I have been reading a lot of material on the Web, and it has been a little confusing as to where to start.
There are many local clubs to join where I live in Georgia; I just need to know where to start. I know that I need a license from the FCC, but would appreciate help in what to do first and where is the best information on handheld programming of these little radios.
I don't want to just fire it up and start fumbling around without knowing what to do. Thanks for any help you all can provide.
