Re: Telemedical Consult Preparations/Suggestions?

Crosecut , your list if med channels probably won't be of much use to you. Those frequencies are dedicated for paramedic and doctor communication to include telemetry of EKGs. They haven't been used much in my area thanks
to cellphones for the most part.

For HTs I went the Yaesu VX8 route. Worth every penny.

Since this thread has mentioned several CW rigs; what about keys? What kind of key do you use out in the field TacAir?

Analog vs Digital

As most might know, Yaesu Has made an offer to clubs to get the new fusion repeaters for cheap. These are analog/digital repeaters and my club PAARC in PA has grabbed one and is testing on 440. A lot of people are picking up Yaesu digital HTs and mobiles and there is always some discussion on the pr...

Pretty cool idea. A bit limited, but then again for a QRP or back up rig it could be just what you need.

CW is not needed, just trying to get up to speed on it before taking the Extra test.

Re: Anytone/Baofengtech "8R" series multi-certified radios

Interesting radio. I doubt I'd buy one simply because I don't have a need for another HT. If I were in the market for an HT or several I'd take a serious look at these though.

Where do you hang o ham frequencies?

I'm a tech level, have had my license a little over a year and I'm studying once again for my General. When I tested I had every intention of taking both the same day but a 24 hour shift the day before left me pretty beat so I just did the tech test.

Re: 2m and 7cm bicycle antenna

If you're looking for a used Baofeng, look no further. I have a 5R pro sitting in the corner collecting dust (I've switched over to all Yaesu radios) and it has a speaker mic, spare battery, charger and second antenna. I'll let the whole package go for thirty bucks and I'll cover the shipping. It's...

I just stick my mag-mount 5/8 wave Larsen on the Blackburn rack. Seems to play well enough. YMMV. That's another good idea. I have a metal milk crate on the back of my bike.

Re: Newbie help for comm prepping

I suggest that when you start loading HAM frequencies you check on line for 2 meter and 70cm repeaters in your area. Most repeaters I've worked off of have a send and receive frequency along with some form of squelch tone for activation. There's a book out listing all the repeaters in the US and the...
