Now that the current tasks have been completed I can turn my attention back to enhancing the site and adding several new sections that have been suggested. While it is very possible to spend a large amount of money on this hobby it is also possible to get in without having to take out a second mortgage. One of the things I’m going to build is a getting started section to serve as a handy guide for those new to ham radio. Things like echolink and software defined radios offer ways to get on the air without breaking the bank. If you’d like to listen to HF and you don’t even have a receiver go to the http://websdr.org/ and you can listen online right now and get a small taste of what software defined radios can do. Any suggestions for new hams just getting started would be greatly appreciated.
