Default Where to start??

I may have put the horse before the cart here, but I purchased a YAESU FT-2800M radio. I currently have a two way radio in my 40, but the club only communicates with CB or HAM, so I decided to make the move..

So, my question...Where do I start about getting my license? What books, web sites etc do I need to get the ball rolling?

Thanks,

Kurt

If you prefer reading (printing) a PDF this study guide works great. Use the practice tests on QRZ and you will find that in short order you will have masters the material.

Exam sites are found online and there seems to bee an exam somewhere in the metro area each week. It takes about a week after then exam for your call sign to get posted.
