Ham contacts without hf?
« on: April 29, 2012, 11:54:24 PM »
hey ya'll .. great to be here.
as you see my name is my callsign. i am on 2 m fm . run a jpole with 2 rigs on the same one. both fm. one is dual mode. however i have not got my hf as of yet. i am still looking for one. anyways i am running 147.000 offset +600.  if any of my fellow canadians can reach me id really enjoy the new contacts. i shall let you know when i do get hf and properly hooked up with it.

I am on 2 meter everywhere we travel, normally on simplex 146.52 on the road ...always try to find a local repeater and any local nets wherever we park for more than a day or two. I've had some great conversations along the way.

We started full timing in 2005.  Recently bought a home base in East Texas, and most years travel anywhere from North Florida to New Mexico east to west, and as far north as Iowa ...pretty much anywhere in the US but only rarely in the NE. We're in N Texas right now, just NW of Ft Worth.

Seeing as how you are working 2 meter, have you looked into any of the D-Star stuff yet? You need a D-Star repeater in your area and then that opens up a whole new ball game.

Then there is echo link to get you out there.
