All the above advise. Don't call CQ, that's more for HF. Don't barge into a conversation without having something constructive to say. Don't sound like a CBer. Don't use BREAK or BREAKER. Break is for sending messages. Don't have the Roger Beep on. One of the things I usually tell new operators is to check into as many nets as possible. But if no clubs near you this may not be possible. And don't expect miracles from a hand held. See if a local amateur will spend some time with you in testing how effective the hand held is.
