I just picked this up and decided to get into ham radio in light of the possible WW3. Anyone know any good books about ham radio for the absolute beginner?

You know what's nuts? I was just looking at this exact radio on Amazon yesterday. I don't personally know, I just know what they're theoretically capable of and know a HAM radio network is basically our best bet at communication if shit hits the fan
