He is Speaking the Truth I've been a Ham for 13years now still fairly new. I've been a part of three life and death rescues where a cell phone would not work. I once did a auto patch to CHP to report a wild fire and the dispatcher kept asking me for the cross streets. I gave her the wgs84 cords. and told her to give them to the pilot. He flew right to Us. Get your Lisc, you won't regret it!Here's the sales pitch:
There's never been a better time to be a 'Ham'. It's not just for WWII vets and nerds any more.
I got my license for $10 and 4 hours of study. Over 3/4 of my Xterra club guys are hams.
You don't need to know Morse Code any more to get licensed. Even cool kids are doing it.
Hand held ham radios are inexpensive and waaaaay better than FRS or CB.
No idiots allowed on Ham frequencies, always good folks..That use words like 'Folks'.
Hams will be talking long after cell phones, power grids and internet takes a dump.
