I plan on taking my technician exam in early December. I'm looking for resources, not to study for the exam, but as references while operating the radio. Most of what I've found are HOW-TOs on passing the exam, not on actual operations. I'm not worried about passing the exam, but as we all know, being able to pass a test doesn't necessarily make one competent.
So, to my question: Are there any amateur radio resources you intermediate and advanced operators have found invaluable as you have used your radios over the years? I plan on having a mobile station and will probably build a base station when my son is a bit older and more able to be involved.
