    He meant trail coms. Lol
    More of us are running ham over cb.
    But you do need to get a license to run on ham(free-$15) bunch run the baofeng handhelds and others run the ftm-400

    HRO is haveing a killer sale on the ftm through January.

    Here is some local ham info. https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/official-colorado-ham-and-cheese-thread.427834/

    Im with yall, but intend to get a good HAM unit. Was looking the other day and didnt see any tests being given in the currently scheduled future. I do still like my CB, but enough people dont run them that it would be wise to have both available.

    I saw this but I thought it was just a gathering of like minded radion people.

    I wish I knew what a ftm-400 and kenwood 710 g were.

    Maybe if I knew somebody that was going that I could trust that would steer me in the right direction on what radio to buy as I have no knowledge at all about them then I might would go and start gathering parts to have a mobile unit ready for when I get one of those nifty call signs like all the cool kids have these days.
