Request: new Amateur Radio sub-forum
« on: July 17, 2012, 11:21:35 AM »
I would be interested in a new sub-forum titled "Amateur Radio" or "Radio Communications" or something like that under "Everything Else".  Anybody else interested?

Great idea!  I'll bring that up with the Admins.

...ish.

I don't have a Ticket, but I do have 2m (139-174) handhelds...

The desire to control the life of others is more evil than the desire to simply kill them.
The desire to control the life of others by proxy, through “voting”, is just as evil… but more cowardly.

I just picked up my GMRS license and sit for the technician test on 9/8. I bought a Wouxun 6D handheld and am starting the search for vehicle units. It would be nice to have the sub-forum to serve as a radio friendly discussion group and to act as a FSW freq coordinator for all of us.

Your wish is my command: I wish you luck!  ;D
Feel better now?

Ham test? or otherwise?

BTW, four of us had a on air chat this morning, with one more joining in but too weak to take part. That's five active FSW folks communicating on air. And a few more in the wings about to climb on board.
