Re: Someone push me...

A. When do all these nets become self-aware? B. I know the sky is the limit, but how hard is this on a wallet, for someone on a fixed income who doesn’t want to blow thousands on it. I’m talking a basic setup.... enough to get started. You can buy a HT (handy talkie) for $30 quite easily. Is a $30 ...

I went thru skywarn earlier this year.

Re: Someone push me...

I used www.hamstudy.org at someone's suggestion last year. Took my tech after studying for 2 days and I think I may have missed 2 questions. A week later (field day 2017) I passed general after studying for 3 days. Another week later, I took extra and passed. Very handy site!

"Though many are too young to vote, they plan to shape the election."

Do you think maybe there's a reason that the voting age is what it is?

I will be the first to give those kids props if they can convince all the gang bangers to turn in their weapons and change their ways. The crime rate would drop faster than CNNs ratings! I do not think it is a likely outcome though.
