    Default HAM radio

    So as well as being into PC's I am a huge jeep guy. This is my jeep/battle buddy Rattlehead a few weeks ago.

    Having a CB is a big part of the offroad sport you need to communicate to the other drivers. So I installed my first CB this summer and a few weeks ago I was up on the mountain messing around and I got to talk to someone far away on my CB. Not really really far away probably like 20ish miles away. That was all I needed,I want to get my HAM licence and a add a HAM radio to my rig. Is anyone else into HAM radio?
    The choice is clear I can quit
    And fall on my sword or light a fire
    To see who runs or stays
    And plays the confidence game

    That is pretty cool. I used to mess around with a HAM radio when I was a kid. We found it in the garage. Could hear all the truckers going back and forth. One time we picked a random channel and was saying random things into it not expecting a reply. Well we got one any ways. Dude came back and was saying some pretty worrisome stuff about what he wanted to do to kids. CLICK! Enough of the HAM for the day!

    Adding one to your rig would be pretty cool. Look forward to seeing this.

    In the spring I am going up the wattage to a full 4 watts I think that's what it is. It is either 4 or 5 watts is the legal limit. Most radios come shipped under the limit so they don't get in trouble by going over.
