What is an Elmer?
Elmer – “Someone who provides personal guidance and assistance to would-be hams and also to hams that are seeking personal assistance in specific areas of the amateur radio hobby.” — N2QOJ

Please remember, Elmers are volunteers so be respectful of their time! If you need help, please be flexible and reachable by the Elmer that you request.
