Five years ago I posted an article about how much ham radio costs. Well, lots has changed in the last five years, so this video addresses the question again.
The Ask Dave series answers your questions about ham radio. You can submit questions by clicking here. Episode 19 answers the common question: how much does it cost? The video walks through the various costs and makes specific equipment recommendations. The Ham Radio Answers channel also includes instructional videos for all three ham radio levels in the US: Technician, General, and Amateur Extra.
Can one directly get an extra license without getting other lower level licenses? Is there any advantage to get a license for every step?
