Excited, I received my license and first HAM radio: the Yaesu FT-817nd. I am very happy with it - it's very small and lightweight. Convenient to use. I go through an unboxing of the radio, and describe some of its features and components.
I had a lot of trouble making my first contact, but lesson learned is to always call the repeater. Best place to start and won't leave you frustrated.
