    Hello, Just reading thgoruh this topic of HAM radio for survival. I have a deep concern about being able to reach my wife and children in the event of emergency and suspect that cell phones will be useless. I looked into small, hand held HAM units, almost like a walkie-talkie, and wonder about the range. I work 25 miles from home, would a HAM hand held unit cover that distance to communicate with my wife at home?Thank you,Patrick Minns

    Curious how much are the FT-60 or FT-8800 with the group buy? I outfitted my Jeep last year with a FT-7900 since it was aaliavble for around $150 less at the time, had the same power output on 2m and a bit more on 70cm than the 8800 and backlit buttons which were handy for nite operation. The 8800 allows cross-band repeater capability and dual-band RX operation, but in a mobile rig those didn't seem as critical. Either rig would be a great addition for folks. At some point I should take the General exam

    You're right. Republicans having seuaxl rendevouz is the worst possible problem our country could face.Our fragile American morals can't handle seuaxl liasons, but we can all stand around twiddling our thumbs while the economy goes down the crapper and money is thrown down into the bottomless pit we created in Iraq. Republican leaders think you can cut taxes, fight two wars and create tons of deficit and everything will be okey-dokey as long as we don't have gay marriage and brown people from Mexico destroying our way of life.Gotcha. http://ckabub.com [url=http://oucrtkwf.com]oucrtkwf[/url] [link=http://aeequcx.com]aeequcx[/link]
