Thanks, that was great.

Passing the technician exam, this is the band you will be using mostly.. 2m.. Some areas like mine is very active.. Other area dead.. It's very localized...

Excellent intro video! suggestion: many of our trainees are very curious about range, so if you could post the mileage from your station to the repeaters and from the repeaters to your two contacts, it will give them an idea of "range" (along with repeater heights of course).

I wish we had a "thumbs up" emoticon!!

I'm not heading back for my masters... at least not yet. I'm still working on my bachelors.
