Hello everyone,
I need help obtaining information on how to obtain an amateur radio license .
I obtained my my FCC GROL a year ago but now I am curios as to how
a HAM radio work and how I can program frequencies in it as this will
help me at work. I currently work as DAS tech installing systems for the
Public Safety sector (fire/ems, police) in northern Ca. I truly
appreciate any information anyone can share with me.
Thank you

Getting licensed

Refer to the particular manual for programming. Radio licenses are of three types:
Technicians
General
Extra
You have to start from the technician, they can move to general and finally to extra.
Watch this video on youtube from TinHatRanch which explains all details: https://youtu.be/bYEzUbb07Mc

Also, refer to ARRL website for more details. Sorry for not sharing links. Since I can't post links.
