I've been a HAM since 10 May, 2001. I upgraded to Extra Class on 11 November, 2001.
I've built my own Antenna for 2M.
I've also built my own CW key.
Here are some pictures
of the antennas on my old truck. Unfortunately, this truck has been sold
and another has been bought, so I'm in the process of transferring/reworking
the system to fit on the new truck. This is what I run for CB, HF, 2M, APRS,
and 440. Look closely, there is a smallish wire that is part of the HF
"Horseshoe with Fangs" antenna loop. The pictures are rather large, so
be prepared for a long download if you're not on broadband. Many thanks to
Duane, KX8D, at www.comdac.com for
taking the pictures.
Here is a link I found for information about talking to the International Space Station .
A recording of K0RIC on the W.A.R. (We Ain't Right) net being extremely funny can be found here .
Here's a sound test for Brad, N8QQ
, testing his compression on his rig.
State Scanner Laws
This section is a
list of clickable links to applicable state scanner laws. The list is currently
incomplete, but I'll be adding the links as I find them. Why do you need
these? Your 2M rig is capable of receiving police frequencies, and is covered
under the statutes. You must carry a copy of your license to show the officer,
and carrying a copy of these statutes may get you out of a bind. I hope you
find these helpful. I've had need to use these in my job, and they've saved
me from a ticket and confiscation of my equipment.
