    I dont know if any of you are into ham radio, I know a good number of firearm owners are hams too for SHTF scenarios. Anyways, no more morse code requirements for General or Extra licenses. This means you only need to pass the written exam to operate on HF.

    I've got a tech license that I got when I was like 13 or 14 but I quickly discovered 2m locally was just a bunch of old men talking. The internet, its the wave of the future ;)

    that's cool. though little use for HAM radio's operators license unless you're looking for long range communication for emergency preparedness

    I think that was the reason he posted. I've thought of looking into it also, but just don't have the money for something portable size for my BOB.

    LOL, that's what my friends and I call it. Or we make fun of Bushie and just call it the internets. Then when someone calls it that, we ask, "Which one? The blue one, or the red one?"
    "The blue one, dumb ass."
