hamman....My ex-wife is a dispatcher for our county 911..Wow we really do have a lot in common.
We (ex & I) were both on the VFD as well as our daughter and my step-daughter. Really made for some interesting times!
I have an old TV tower about 45-50 feet tall and a 2 meter antenna, but don't have the gonads to climb that high to install it. I really need to get that antenna up, because the handi-talkies with 5 watts is kind of difficult to hit the repeater from inside the house...(about 18 miles)

Used to be. My Dad had his tech license for many years before he passed. I got my novice license as a teen (when it was code only), and spent a quite a few years "di-dah'ing" around the world. Lost interest when I went to college and never picked it back up again.
