I don't see a microphone or antenna....

Regardless however I can guarandamteeya this thing won't survive the thrashing they are showing in the vid.

Not only would everything inside loosen up and start to fall apart but the hydraulic system looks like a nightmare and like the rest will not stand up to what is being shown.

I've been in the RV biz long enough to see all kinds of gimmicky things and one thing is for certian - the more complicated it gets the more that goes wrong.

RV's are a 'rolling earthquake' and the rougher one is towed, the quicker it falls apart.

OTOH the blond will probably hold up for a while with proper care and maintenance....

But, but it has open book shelves.

I am in agreement regarding the blond. ;-)
 
$177,000 for the exp-8 (Sadly and a deal breaker, blond not included)

This is BEYOND laughable and ANYBODY who would pay this much for this joke is oblivious to reality and nothing more than a 'show off' who can afford something they have no knowledge of - but are just buying into the 'fad' of 'survival' or 'SHTF' and are otherwise completely clueless....

Trust me - I see this ALL the time....

DMR?

What Ham systems have DMR?

 
Morse Code.
May not be required ... but having a reference is not a bad idea.

From our time watching Wheel of Fortune, we know we should memorize the most common letters (basic code breaking 101)

R / S / T / N / L / E

.-. / ... / - / -. / .-.. / .
There are hardware decoders/coders - right?

What is recommended for this hardware?

Are there transceivers that have this built in?
 
Any in-person ARRL testing in Hillsboro, Portland, Saint Helens area?

I can only seem to find online web based.
I want to take the Tech/General. Working through the practice sessions. Seems worth doing.

Yep, check out Oregon Tualatin Valley Amateur Radio Club at OTVARC.org


They hold their meetings at Cedar Hills Baptist Church.


Great group of folks there!

CARA will have testing starting up again in the new year in St. Helen's.

 
I picked up this short text on a bit of a lark. For brand new hams with ticket in hand for the first time, it actually is a good, short workbook to get rolling. For more seasoned folks, not so much. Anywho, just passing the info along. Cheers.

What us HAMS on the NWFA SHOULD do is pick a frequency and have an informal, weekly 'ragchew' just to BS a bit and maybe help the potential new HAMS get involved.

Initially we could use the PeakNet system on 2 meter which new Techs could use (if they have a repeater nearby) and maybe later go to HF for Generals and higher.

Just a thought...

This section is too big and forum is pretty deep….. I don't want to hijack anything but not sure if it's worthy of its own thread and possibly mentioned already.

But….. I just discovered a company service.
Pre programmed radio "kits"….

"Radio made easy"…
