I just got my Amateur Radio License, Now what???
So you passed your test and your License is printed out and sitting on the mantle... Now what???
The question, "now what?" plagues every new Ham. Used to be that you had to have an Elmer (mentor) in your corner before you even went in for your test. Now you can prepare for all three levels of Amateur Licenses using an App on your Smart-phone. Heck, you might even have taken the test on a dare at a conference like this one, and much to your surprise, you passed!
The trick now is not to let your shiny new License gather dust like the rest of the stuff plopped up on that mantle!
This talk is your survival guide to finding a club, a click, and figuring out what part of Amateur Radio you want to tackle right out of the gate. I'll also share some little known secrets of why you want to upgrade to General, and what the best way to do it is.
