Amateur Radio

I just signed up for a course training me up for an N-class amateur radio operator license. The “N” meaning “novice”, apparently. That’s the introductory license for amateur radio operators, allowing a person to broadcast over a small selection of the available bandwidth. It seems like an interesting hobby to try out, and as I discovered the introductory is really low. It seems like a great niche between my interest in electronics and interest in computing. Worse thing that could happen is that I discover that it’s not as interesting as I thought, and I’ve learned some new things. So, why not, you know?
