    On a good note though, my wife got paid $1100 for her mosaic today. :bananadance:

    You know how it is. Just a wild gun tote'n, liqour stores on the highway, free for all. Haha why'd they head up here?


    Actually it's just been wet. Real wet. The neighbors decided to put in a new driveway this morning. Escavator was going at it until 3pm. Safe to say I did not make it in early today.

    I went through that at my last apartment. Was right on a highway, and they redid the entire stretch through there when I was working twelves (5am to 5:30pm with a 1 hour both ways travel time) I didn't get much sleep with construction equipment 6 feet from my bedroom wall and orange lights flashing through the blinds....

    3 hours is not nearly enough, reminds me of when I used to do back to back doubles at my old job. Definitely getting too old to be doing that again.

    It's out of everyone's price range. But it makes the other ones seem not so expensive hahaha

    Good point. If I ever have a wife and need permission to get something.......I know to start with the most expensive and then go to the cheaper one without bitching :rofl:

    I haven't even looked into the others. Does each one just give you more channels(longer distance) you can chat on?

    Bingo. Genrel get you the HF frequencies. Those are the world wide bands. It's a little more in depth, but it's kind of like a cook book recipe. There's a few things that'll help you pick which bands to use depending on who you want to talk to. I could easily hit you guys down there with the right HF rig.

    Main reason I want one is for safety. Way out in the back country I'd always be able to find someone. Also, it'll make for a nice camp fire hobby when camping in the mountains. Some set ups are really portable

    Gotcha.
    Just for hypothetical reasons. Say you had one of those and got lost out in the wilderness. You decide to use it to get help, would you get into any trouble considering you don't have a license.

    I've seen questions about station operators and them being able to use frequencies they aren't licensed for in case of human or property emergency.......just didn't know how it would be for your average person.
