I will also recommend Ubuntu for a newcomer to Linux. If you take the
time and do some reading, you will see that you can run it as a livecd.
No installation required. Be aware that as a livecd it will run much
slower as it is using just the RAM in your computer.
Poke around and have some fun with it, if you don't think Linux is for
you, just toss the cd....no harm no foul.
There are quite a few ham apps around.....remember "google is your friend".
