    I Have been a HAM since the earlier 80’s Things are a changing from sitting around talking on the mike on a 160 meter to digital communications/ I have a DMR find it hard to use. I wish there is a site that I can learn from.

  • W4FBL:

    The video on the airplane on ham radio was great. I have made many contacts with arinotical hams. Always is fun to do.
    Thanks for the info on this one
