    Ham radios

    Just bought a p/s for my ham shack, will be setting up my vintage 2m rig in there to start. Just got my General class license manual and am studying for an upgrade. Planning on getting an hf rig (my brother is considering selling me an older (vac tube finals) hf rig of his. Currently bidding on a shortwave radio to throw in in the meantime. My hamshack isn't really started yet, but pics will be forthcoming.

    Anyone else here active in ham radio?

    I am not that active currently, but I do still have a dual band rig in my pickup truck and one in the house. I have a pair of Yaesu FT-8800s. It is a fun hobby. Good luck on the Amateur Extra!

    Haven't got the General yet, just the manual. Once I get an HF rig maybe we could set up an OR sched Once its a bit warmer I think I'm gonna mount a mobile in my truck again.

    Sounds like we need to get you active too. I got license about 13 years ago, just finally trying to upgrade now. I used to be real active but for the last 6 years or so not so much. Now I'm getting interested again.

    I would like my country back. I used to believe that one man could never destroy this country. Not so sure anymore!

    I'm a General operator, my eight year old is a Tech.

    You can be the weapon, and the gun in your hand is a tool - or the gun is a weapon and you are the tool.

    but every girl I found was either one way or the other...
