This might be interesting for me if I decide to become a radio amateur.

Hope you do Pete.

I have my licence now (VK2PCR). I suspect CH regs would be much the same (most countries standardise to the ITU - Int'l Telecommunication Union), probably 3 levels of licence and the first level is easy to pass.

You'd have ready made sked-buddies - and you can get some cheap and simple 20 meter gear and get on air quick.

I think this is the Swiss equivalent of our WIA and the US ARRL;

And, even if you don't get a rig to start with, you can use Echolink and IRLP (access ham repeaters via the internet basically - you could even remote into our local repeater.
There's a whole new world out there Pete.
