What is the best course for getting new Ham license? - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Hi guys. I am finally going to get my Ham license. What do you veterans of the Amateur world recommend for studying for the tests? There are lots of courses out there, but any tips on the best for the money (or free) would be apprecaited. Thanks.

Oh also what would be a good entry level radio that will allos for advancement to higher levels? I live on the outskirts of Boston now in a neighborhood that probably would not like a big tower or antenna. What's good for a "contained" environment?

The ARRL.org website is the best source for all the study materials you need. Just about anything they endorse by selling will be good. Where are you located in Boston?
