    Get one of the study guides. I read through it one time the week before and passed with no issues. The test costs $15, cash only and in most areas is the first Saturday of the month. You can get a radio now, but cannot legally transmit on it without a license.

    None of the HAM / Amateur radios will transmit on commercial / race frequencies without export mods. So yes, it will have to be modded.

    Hamtestonline.com guarantees u will pass. Teaches each section then gives you the questions and repeats questions that you miss. Then has practice tests as well.

    Questions for the OP about the radio and antenna install:

    1) You link to a general page for the antenna mount and antenna, and list models that don't exactly match the products. So is the antenna/mount an NMO or PL-259?
    2) What is the antenna connector on the radio? PL-259?
    3) Did you have to buy the antenna cable separately or did it come with the antenna or mount?
