There are books available for studying to get licensed and if you have any questions please stop by.

Discussion Forum
The TARA Discussion Forum contains information regarding the current and future TARA internet linking projects, and a place for hams to discuss Echolink in New Mexico. The forum will include the status of the Middle Rio Grande Valley Echolink systems, images, and configuration protocols as reference for Echolink users; and users will have the ability to post comments, questions, and information about their own systems. I highly encourage you to use this forum and let others know about it to promote interest in Echolink and amateur radio in our community.
