Local Help Wanted:

Local Ham Todd (KL4EL) purchased an Elecraft KX-1 Ulta-Portable CW Transceiver.  Todd is having vision problems and is looking for someone to solder and help put it together.  Contact the webmaster if you wish to volunteer for completion of his project.

Now What?  Ok... So you got a new Technician License or upgraded to a General Class.  Now what do I do?   What do I need to get on-the-air?  Where do I buy a radio or antennas?    Some ideas coming soon…
