Hello FL Techie,
I too am from Brevard, Palm Bay, and my call is WB4VAM. I belong
to PCARS (Platinum Coast Amateur Radio Club), and we meet at the Salvation Army building
in Melbourme. It is next to Holmes Regional Medical Center. We meet every 2nd monday
of each month and would look forward to seeing you. Oh, and sorry, the name here is
Dave. There are many avenues to obtain your license, and we (PCARS) give the exams also.
We have a few members from Canaveral, but if that is too long of a drive for you, there
is a club in Merrit Island called the Indian River Amateur Radio Club (IRARC). My wifes
father is a member of that one. Our website is pcars.org and feel free to look at it.
Arrl.org and qrz.com are some goo website to go for newcomer info, and the qrz
website even has practice tests.
Good luck and feel free to email me at
if you have any questions.
