Re: Yep, I am now a space wizard!

Get ready to have fun. Don't be surprised if (on some nets) you are not welcomed with open arms. Second hint - don't metion that you are a prepper. Many in the ham community - sadly and for whatever reason equate that to being a "wacker". IOW, don't let a tiny minority spoil what can be great fun. ...

Yep, I am now a space wizard!

Just passed my Amateur Extra. Two months of study group, watching Dave Casler's Amateur Extra Radio class on Youtube and a lot of practice testing. I love the idea of having the extra bandwidth. Now I'm off to practice CW and some digital modes.

I picked up one. I am pretty impressed with it's performance. Now that I'm done studying for my Extra I will have a little more time to do some additional testing.

Re: Traill Friendly radios - new content 2/25 Elecraft KX2

I love my FT-857 but I wanted a more portable one. Price since I already spent the money on a higher end radio is a factor. For teh price of the Xiegu I felt I got a good radio. I also beg to differ. I think with some modifications that I am working on it would be a very trail friendly radio. I will...

Re: Traill Friendly radios - new content 10/30 HB-1B series

I don't know if this is only for CW QRP but, I have the Yaesu ft-857 for my main rig at home, but I just got the Xiegu X108G Outdoor version which is about a mid range priced QRP radio. It has the benefit of going up to 20 W when plugged in to a 13.8 v power source and up to 15 W for 12 v battery op...

Re: Small Trauma Kit (WARNING: large image files)

Would you consider taking out the SAM splint and putting in at least a 500 ml iv bag and cath? My theory is the SAM splint is not too useful in the field in a SHTF scenario and you can usually find other items to splint if necessary. If you are going to have this in your vehicle or something I could...

Re: A question of Daisy BB/Pellet Rifles

IMHO, Pellets over BB's. BB's don't have a straight trajectory. Many times they tend to spiral down range giving you different shot groups. The practice of breathing aiming and pulling the trigger and getting steel on target helps when you do use a rifle but it will be missing a couple of factors. R...
