    Yelling at each other, for another beer, is uncivilized, sir.

    Yes it is.


    Until you have a reason to need to talk to someone.

    I basically have it for an emergency and that’s about it really. The things has kinda been about a 600 dollar brick so far with as much as I’ve used it.

    Those can fail. Two tin cans with a really long string is the only way to be sure.

    If I don't die pretty soon, I'm going to get my ticket. Talked all over the world on 11m. I only run about 600 watts now, but I've ran 1500+ through my 3 element yagi. Talked to Brazil a awhile back from my car.

    Ironically assman has an EPIRB, for some crazy reason his wife bought it for him after he got his first “offshore” boat, I was afraid to go out in the bay on that scow, but fearless ass man and his brother “markbarta” thought nothing of going 80 miles out to the canyon, in a 24’ 1979 single engine chaparral... that leaked and had a sketchy electrical system.
    I’ve contemplated buying a sat phone, they are relatively cheep now days and you can get “pay as you go” plans, but, I don’t really travel that much.

    I got the bug again about a year and a half ago. Made General last summer and have been working primarily FT8 on 20/40/80 with my Yaesu FT-950 using a homebrew 20m inverted-v laying on my roof for 20/40 and a 37 foot end fed for 80. I don't have much horizontal space at my house, so full sized horizontals are out of the question.
