When you have a lot of questions or are pre-license with more interest than actual knowledge, a really good place to begin is with a local ham or a local club. Then partiscipate in FIELD DAY events with hams. By the time you have your license you will have a good idea what you want for your situation, sort of what fits you. You also will have made invaluable contacts for technical input and a remarkable source of encouragement. Use this forum in addition to the above.

Some clubs have club stations set up where you can go operate some under the watchful eyes and guidance of licensed club members and get your feet wet right away. These same folks will most likely trip all over themselves to help you learn all you need and more for the tests to any level and the all important CW mode of ops.

Its all good and its all fun and you will make more friends than you ever dreamed. Lots of hams regularly work from stations they have built that operate on alternative sources of power. There is huge expertise in this area as well.

The beauty of ham radio is as a hobby, it brings together professionals from ALL walks of life. You may talk to a neuclear physicist today and this evening talk to a generator expert, and tomorrow a doctor and even Art Bel if you get really really lucky. he is still active I believe.

If you got the interest, we got the time.
Go for the gold !
