I suggest you download the OFFICIAL QUESTION POOL from the ARRL. If you base your studies on this, you will see EVERY possible question that you will see on a test. This is the stuff I base my ham radio class on. Just two hoours of class time a week, and self-study - and in 6 weeks I have several going for the test on Saturday.

 

We will see.

 

Good luck to you, and welcome to out world.

Congrats on passing your test. And, yes, eham is a good site for product reviews. If you are interested in the hobby I recommend joining a club. I belong to one that is very active, and there are enough highly technical people to help you with anything electronic. (we have radio, gps, computer engineers)

 

Some of the activities we do in a year, usually on HF radio:

Field Day: Contact clubs around the hemisphere on generator power...in a field.

International Lighthouse Weekend: We set up at a historic (1874) lighthouse as part of the Amateur Radio Lighthouse Society.

Museum Ships weekend: Set up at our club station in a Maritime Museum, with a historic ship docked outside. Contact other ships and amateurs.

IOTA DX trip: Go to Catalina Island as part of the international Islands on the Air, and contact people collecting islands. Last year we contacted 130 countries in a weekend. Look for K6AA this weekend from NA066.

Jamboree on the Air: For Scouts, we put them at the Mic and talk to other Scouts around the country.

Various contests such as Sweepstakes, and international DX. Operate from the club station or portable in a park with towers and motorhomes. These are a good way to improve your operating skills.

Hunger walk, Music Fair, Air Show: Community service providing communnications at these public events. VHF using handhelds.
