    Wouldn’t matter. If it was in December all you would be saying is "why is Christmas so expensive? "

    To be fair compare the dobinson to the bp51. The dobibson usa website needs some updating though.

    I was. There non resi adj. coil overs are very similar in price to the standard ome stuff. There resi coilovers i would compare more towards king and icon than bp51. There bigger diam. and are ext. travel. The bp51 are not ext travel. The bp51 have a little more adjustments tho.

    Extended travel is cool, I still wanna ride in a BP51 vehicle.

    Who all on here is licensed to use Ham radio? Looking at getting my license in the near future. Trying to get an idea of where to gather study material and where I can actually take this exam. Looked on ARRL and the closest test facility is in Cullman, or at least that's what its saying. I figured Huntsville would have something a little closer.

    You might be looking at the classes. Not the exam. There is a test in Athens on market street. Good guys. I'll get you the video I watched for studying. If you know electricity, attenuation of signals, and antennas you'll be good. Then just memorize the band's for tech cert. And a couple other things.

    Awesome. How did you get signed up to take the test and how long did it actually take you to finish it?

    Got it. I'm pretty close to Athens so it won't be a big deal getting out there sometime.
