    Very nicely done! Fantastic way to give back and help a great deal of us at the same time!

    I started out helping a few people navigating the HF site, then decided to take it to the next level. Below is my take on an Unofficial Quick Start guide, adding visual references to many of the tips already on the site.

    Please PM me if you see any inaccuracies.

    Mods - move it or whatever as you will.
    Thanks
