The Technician and General licenses are both /dead/ easy to get now. No CW at all, and
simple 35 question multiple choice tests. I got an 80% on general without having studied
for it. I actually feel a little guilty about it. :)

There's tests monthly at BYU, and several other locations in the area. $14 to take the
tests. If you want to do it, go study the question pools online, use the practice tests
for a couple weeks, and then go get your license.

As for giving a presentation, I think I'll leave that to someone who's been on the air
for a while. I don't even have a radio yet. *grumbles*
