    Between us all over here we picked up 6 ham handi talkies. Been playing with those for a few months now.

    Unless someone's got a license, stay clear of the repeater frequencies (input & output). Locate a unassigned frequency to work simplex. Use PL tones for security.

    For sure. Monitoring only so far at this point. Tech for you or General? Expert?

    Antenna is up. Waiting on a 50 ft length of coax to hook it up. (oops). Due tomorrow.

    Bought my daily ration of beer, and dropped off my absent ballot that only had 4 or so Demonrat's on it.

    Most R are unopposed in the primary, as in no D's on ballot.


    I've been buying a standard can veggie sized box of misc canned food every time I get my "ration"

    Not today, I still had food to put away.
