Re: Zombie Glasses?

Sherlock, Welcome aboard! I am nearsighted and wear glasses. What I do is hang on to all my old glasses when I get new ones (my prescription changes a bit every few years).

Re: Zombie Squad Amateur Radio Network: part 3 - Equipment

Well Leethal, I've never used crossband repeat (other than standard networked repeaters) so I cannot shed much light on it. I mean in concept, it is a great idea. Say you had to do some remote SAR, you could park you rig on a hill, set up you crossband and use your HT to get back to the truck, and l...
