This is some information I have found out during my journey into ham radio.
Unless I have something to factually back me up then anything I say here is my opinion or my experience.
I will be having friends add their 2 cents, and any knowledge they gleam from HR also so we can pass it on to others.
I was not born knowing Ham Radio, there are some great sources on the net about Ham Radio it is all out there for consumption but it is a matter of making sense of all of it.
Here are some links to people I have found extremely helpfull in my HR journey (in no particular order):

DX Commander
