Many times, people ask me how I became a ham. Below is my story. However, if you would like to become a ham, ADI radios has put together some pages on that topic that are very informative. You can find them at http://www.hamtest.com/. Ham radio is a very exciting and entertaining hobby for people of all ages and of all backgrounds. Children as young as five have gotten their license, while most hams continue to enjoy the hobby well into their retirement years. If you do decide to become a ham, I wish you luck, and look forward to a QSO (radio conversation) with you.
