Ham Radio


#1

Beautiful new dual-band handheld by Yaesu.


#2

Strictly HF CW here. I realize (especially in US) that UHF VHF have become very popular. Getting ready to take Technician Class test after which they will reinstate my General Class license. I am also curious about ELF. Wonder what I would need for that. Must be a hell of a wavelength.


#3

Should be o.k. as long as your understanding and expertise are kept on the superficial, allowing you to give self assurance in your words and your actions in regards to it.


#4

You could be used for communication unknowingly or against your will.

I really enjoy UHF/VHF. I bought some Chinese Baofengs and programmed them to the FRS frequencies and we use them around the house here in Colombia. Tomorrow or Friday we’re going to test to see if they can reach my woman’s workplace. Fun and useful.


#6

Speaking of HF, what do you think of this thing, Will? I love the look of it.


#8

Me too! Going to search it now. I have very old gear. Would love it if battery power is an option.


#10

Nice radio. 6 meter though. I want 20 40 80 meters. I agree MFJ is the place to buy from. I have an MFJ keyer. MFJ - Mighty Fine Junk.


#12

No, Will, that thing is a full 160 to 6 Meters, all bands. Hell, you could set it to AM and use it as a CB. lol.


#14

Mark, I’m not ignoring you, but you’re being weird so I am not going to respond.


#15

Didn’t realize that. I need to research it.


#16

Understood. I cleared out my confusing posts. And although I have seen a potato clock and a lemon phone charger, I won’t be making an actual ham radio.


#17

What was so weird? Any non earthly contact, like Alien Life Form (ALF) weird? I did research on Extremely Low Frequency waves and telepathy and even made a presentation on it. Will seems enthusiastic but you seem a bit inward Reggie. Do you have any ALF research or experience? I’m really not big on tech dependence. Have you considered changing that same old tired out looking avatar you make us stare at year after year?
