My newest venture...HAM RADIO. I got my technicians license in October 2015. I have been learning quite a bit over the past 3 months. It has been fun! Why did I decide to get into HAM radio? The thought of being able to communicate with people when all other forms have failed, really interested me. Just need a 12 volt battery and your good to go. The radio I got was about $175 and the mag mount antenna was about $25. It will do whatever I need for 2 meter communication. What is 2 meter? Talk to me, I'll tell you. Or Google it. It is good for local communication.
