    Have a look at this website by Jerry Lodriguss – it is a good place to start to become familiar with some of the concepts, equipment, techniques and other factors.

    And you'll soon see that it is a wide field, in both equipment used and techniques. SO as soon as you start let us have a look at what you've got. Not a few people here are into it, too.
