Amateur Radio. Mr. Big Food is on board, too. We are going to get out amateur radio licenses and some equipment. Blog silence is thus explained.
It’s all quite interesting. I’m taking notes. SueK– I found this to be the best bird’s eye view introduction to ham radio. Almost jargon free and very accessible for someone who wants to enter ham world. Comes at it from the perspective of a prepper but not a bat-sh*t crazy TEOTWAWKI SHTF OMG THE WORLD IS ENDING prepper, which is nice.
Amateur radio is, for Mr. Big Food and I, a compromise. As you are know, I am a Full Professor in The Department of Redundancy Department and as such am leery of having only one means of connecting to the world beyond the gate. As you may also know, Mr. Big Food is a Full Professor in The Department of Don’t Waste Money Department and as such is none too happy about spending hard earned money– to the tune of about $1200 a year– on a landline phone that rings off the hook all day.
Enter ham radio. We will begin with handheld devises and once we’ve familiarized ourselves, we’ll move on to a base unit.
This could keep my little brain occupied for months!
