    Ham radio operation is monitered by other Hams and the Federal Communication Commition. Getting onto a Ham radio frequency requires a license. Getting onto commercial frequencies can result in ugly fines. If you buy a Ham rig, get with a Ham club. Their dews are relativly inexpensive and the people you meet will be more than happy to guide you and some of them will try to sell you a Ham rig. So, maybe join before you buy something. Someone might even loan a book. They will want to get you licensed as soon as possible, and that will get you familiar with Ham concepts and liabilities.
