    Yes, like @medic2230 Murphy said, long range communications are possible because of what they call "repeaters". Think of them as cell towers. They are very tall antennas typically erected by private citizens, but sometimes are paid for by government agencies like emergency management agencies.

    Basically you lock in on a repeaters frequency and transmit to it and then it sling shots your signal to another, and another and so on, ultimately to your destination.

    With a CB, you turn the dial to channel 19 and hope for the best. With a HAM radio you find very specific frequencies using slightly more sophisticated methods.

    When I got introduced to digital it was a game changer. So easy to contact someone else anywhere in the world quickly I haven’t even messed with long range analog. I don’t have my General yet so HF is out for me at the moment. I believe I attempted to transmit on my Baofeng once before switching to digital and never looking back. 2 days after getting my ticket my buddy hooked me up with a vhf Motorola mobile and a Radioddity GD-77 dual band DMR. Told me this would get me by till I got my own setup. I got hooked on the DMR clarity and ease of talking worldwide on it.

    Did you know Disney World has a DMR repeater in Orlando? It’s owned by the Disney emergency radio club. It’s open to the public to use in the area and if you are visiting Disney or just want to talk to someone down there. It’s not for emergencies only though, you can use it at any time. I’ve tried for a while to make a contact down there but haven’t yet. Going to keep trying because I’d like to get one of their QSL cards from them. Haha. I think they chose that name for the abbreviation of D.E.A.R.S. ( Disney EARS ). Lol

    I’m not sure if they have a analog side to it though.

    It gets a lot of looks but with the amount of Toyotas being built around here it's not really that unusual.

    That's some nice hardware. What was the damage for both?

    I bought the MD5GP a week after release so I paid $189 to the only one that had one in stock. You can get them around $169 or maybe a little less now. They also have one without the GPS for $149.

    The TM-D710 was $557 but it should keep me satisfied for a long time. There’s not too much it doesn’t do. I can send and receive text messages with it along with seeing what other hams are around me. It can also take me to them. Receives everything from aviation to ham radio on it.

    Stud came out easy, new one went in easy also. They gave me the wrong size lug nut, back I go.

    I contemplated getting a mobile ham setup like that Kenwood, but the price - combined with the fact that some of the mobile ham radio receivers fuck with the first gen's ECU - made me decide against it. :notsure:

    That said, I'm sticking with the Baofeng BF-F8HP.

    I went to the nearest auto parts store, the two dumbest people in Austin work there. I’ll go the extra mile and go to O’Reilly, they have never done me wrong.

    When I get back I’ll need to adjust my e brake, don’t want my truck rolling out of the driveway again. Hopefully I won’t break anything else. :anonymous:

    Easy enough, just put it in reverse, stab the gas and then brake... It'll self adjust. :D
