What's going on with testing prices going up soon, and it is possible for a noob to go from zero to licensed before that time?

Haven't heard on the increase, but if you know where you're going to test you'd be best to call and ask them.
Most places are pretty flexable.
Study BOTH Tech and general.
You can take BOTH tests (assuming you pass tech) for the same price. Trust me, you WANT general.

Brother NZT, you let the cat out of the bag!

The US government is warning that groups could rely on radio equipment as an alternative to social media to plan future criminal activities.

In a stark warning Sunday, the Federal Communications Commission's enforcement bureau said people coordinating or conducting criminal activity over radio waves are breaking the law.

"The Bureau has become aware of discussions on social media platforms suggesting that certain radio services regulated by the Commission may be an alternative to social media platforms for groups to communicate and coordinate future activities," the FCC said in its warning Sunday. "Individuals using radios in the Amateur or Personal Radio Services in this manner may be subject to severe penalties, including significant fines, seizure of the offending equipment, and, in some cases, criminal prosecution."

Websearch up a local club.
Everyone here is old, thus quite paranoid of the China virus.
All of the local clubs haven't had in person meetings since last spring. (Ocean county)
You might have to do it online. I have NO info on that.

KE2RON here. General, I’ll get my extra soon. I’m in Cape May County.
Ham radio can be a bit overwhelming especially when you are beginning. So many options and so much information. There are multiple resources for studying the material some of which have been noted above. There are youtubers who have a great deal of info, enough to explode your head.
Think of ham radio like firearms: there isn’t one that does everything. Decide what you want out of it and start getting stuff to reach your desired goal, understanding that your taste will likely change as you learn more.
Look for a local club that is active during the current apocalypse and get your tech. Get a cheap radio and start playing with it. My first was a beofeng walk-in talkie, it cost $30ish and it got me started. When you start looking at base stations and everything needed you will be looking at thousands of dollars but you don’t have to start there.

This  Net is active after 10:00 PM.

It is very new Ham friendly.

Maybe  in the future  we can start a NJHT Net.
