Welcome @BrianM64 !! Happy to have you! Anything in particular you would most be interested in? HF maybe? We are building some new videos so we can be sure to accomodate :slight_smile:

There is so much out there, where do you start? My head still spins with the band chart and remembering who can do what and where they can do it. HF would definably open up options. Looking forward to learning a lot more from this group.

Brian, I’ve been focused a lot on General and the things you can do with HF, we’re putting together a video that should be out before long. It’s a lot of choices, right? Do you have a radio yet?

I have a handheld YAESU FT-65R, with a DUAL BAND 2M / 70CM SLIM JIM ANTENNA (16’ roll-up antenna). Also trying to make the time to take the General test too.

That looks like a nice sturdy HT. The kind I’d want with me if I was doing some sort of public service event. It should be great for repeaters.

Glad I found this, hopefully it grows and gets bigger and better.
