  • Ham Radio Operators SOUND OFF!!!

    No need to post your call if you don't want to for OPSEC, but sound off with your license class and state:)

    ZA checking in from NC, Extra class:cool: 73!

    Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to
    beat you to death with it because it is empty.

    The faster you finish the fight, the less shot you will get.

        And then there were 2 :)

        There are a few repeaters I can hit in the Charlotte area if that is within range...

            Cool deal GH :) You must be one of them there fast code extras;) Sounds like where I want my setup to be in a few months. I got the battery bank it is just grid tied trickle charged for now... can deploy the solar panels if needed so within a few hours I can be totally on solar :cool:

            Dunno what you can hit on repeaters but Mitchell is just about in range of everywhere...:cool:

                  General, NE Texas. Close enough to hit some DFW repeaters though. I got my ticket in '04 and upgraded at HAMCOM in '08. I don't talk much on VHF and have yet to use my HF gear for anything other than monitoring and testing, but I do have the license and capabilities.

                      Own too many radios to even remember, mostly Motorola commercial gear (Jedi-series HTs and Spectra mobiles) that I get for free when agencies turn it in to my friend's shop. Main amateur rigs are an Alinco DX70 and Yaesu FT8900.

                        BOAST- Portable Tower

                        I started a portable tower system this week. This is for a wind turbine & of course my antennas.

                            Cool Edisto :) I could see a hybrid car towing this behind them with a wind turbine to get some extra juice :D

                            Can't wait to see the finished product :)
