The Size of your Success can be Measured by the Strength of your Desire !!!
There is a difference between INTEREST and COMMITMENT. When you are INTERESTED in something you do it only when it is CONVIENIENT. When you are COMMITED to something you ACCEPT NO EXCUSES and PRODUCE ONLY RESULTS.
I will meet you on your Turf...But it will be on My TERMS!!!
Hello, I have been a licensed "ham" since 2009, its a decent hobby with alot of different modes to work. You can talk to a buddy down the street or to people in different parts of the world. Alot of money can be spent in a hurry but honestly all of them do about the same thing. If anyone on the forum has any questions on getting a license or just about buying gear for shtf stuff, dont hesitate to drop me a line. Mike email@example.com
My fiance is a licensed ham radio operator. I know how to use them too. It's really helpful out on the logging roads to avoid some dicey encounters with loaded trucks. I don't remember exactly what he paid for his, but I think it was a worthwhile investment.
