Hi all. I'm taking my technician test on Saturday. I feel good about it. The hamstudy app is pretty helpful.
Anyway looking forward to getting to talk.
I've acquired some tools the last few months. I have a Baofeng UV5r. It seemed a little too cheap, so I picked up a Yaesu FT60r. I can't hear anything out in the sticks where I'm at so I tried the "better" antennas without much luck. So I installed a TYT TH9800 in my Jeep and I can hear a bit better.
Mainly interested in practicing radio to prepare for emergency communications.
I'm a disabled combat veteran. Served in the Army. I used SINCGARS.
