I've been thinking about getting my husband a CB or ham radio for Christmas, and would appreciate input on which would be the better investment.
Check out the ARRL's website:This site is great, these are just the sort've conversations I need.
Is there a "Ham for Dummies" or a learning guide for Ham you would recommend for complete beginners? Why is it so licensed? Would you have less steps to take if you just wanted to listen rather than transmit? If TSHTF (I'm new I hope that's right) I would assume I can stop worrying about licensing and transmit if I have to.
