Sorry if I have posted to the wrong forum and please advise if other forums are more appropriate. I am admittedly ignorant regarding specifics of Ham radio operation but I have several questions specific to HF/SSB use on the high seas and the "Ham Nets" that exist for the maritime community. Several of the queries are a bit involved for a forum post so I would welcome a phone conversation. Please contact me at my e-mail address (offshoremedical@hotmail.com) with a number and convenient time to call or I will supply my number and you may call collect. Thanks for any and all assistance.

Hi Bill, I hope you get an email on this and a personal call from someone that will help you direct.  But if you do not maybe these weblinks will help you as there is lots of information here and I am sure you will find what you are looking for (but again I am like you...you can't beat direct help!)..73 de KB9UMT Don Peoria, IL

Thanks Don,

Will check the links and keep searching. As you may have surmised, the queries involve radio medical advice for the maritime community.

Thanks again,

Ok you should not have said you wished you had a call sign!!...PLEASE GET ONE!!  The Ham radio community is great and would welcome you with open arms.  Please if you really do want to become a ham email me or look me up on www.QRZ.com.  I would be happy to help in any way possible.  You might not know it but I am sure there is a Ham club in driving distance that would also like to help and they too may have a VE testing for the Licencing.  You can look at the ARRL (www.arrl.com) website for more information on becoming an Amatuer radio operator and getting Licenced or please give any of us here a call.  Jump in you won't be sorry....take care de KB9UMT Don
