Teton Amateur Radio Repeater Association (TARRA)
 

Hello MaryLou,

Don't give up on getting started with your ham radio license. The Technician class, which is the entry level, the test changes about every three or four years. It may be easier now than when you tried it. You are probably too far away to take one of my classes ; ) I will suggest a couple of things, looking for a club in your area and I am sure you would be able to find someone to help you study. http://www.arrl.org/find-a-club  Then after you have gotten some study time in, start taking the practice tests on the internet. They will help you to find out what areas you need to study more. It is a fun hobby with a lot of great people, which makes it worth the effort. Hang in there and put a little work into it.
