So, I’ve got a new hobby. I bought my first (super-cheap) Ham Radio last week, and am studying toward getting my Amateur Radio Foundation License, allowing me to transmit! By Christmas, I’ll have a call sign and hopefully a logbook full of brilliant contacts with some new friends. I’m starting small (local) on VHF/UHF, but I’ll be talking to the aliens like Jodie Foster in no time, just as soon as I upgrade my kit (which I won’t be doing until I’m actually ALLOWED to transmit. Without a license I can only listen in). Already, without me actually saying a word, I’m having a great time!
The big question is, who else out there is into this? If you’re a radio ham, drop your call sign in the comments below and who knows? Maybe one day we’ll talk!
