Anyone a ham radio operator?

Got my technician license last week and bought myself a Baofeng UV5R plus and a mag mount antenna

Welcome, W0FRZ here. I am not very active, but when I am, I am on 145mhz or 440mhz (like your radio).

Not to be a d1ck, but wtf is ham radio? I see it on people's license plates once in awhile but never knew what that meant. Is it just like a cb radio group or emergency broadcasters?

I've had my Tech license for 20-plus years. I'm not particularly active, but I used to do some search and rescue type stuff. Most recently I've provided communication support for youth outdoor activities and Scout campouts.

That's cool Dave. I usually use mine for storm spotting, and helping out at county fairs. Oh and I am a general class, the only reason I got it was I was going to school for electronics at the time.

I plan on getting my license soon. I've always been big into short-wave radios. I'm going to make a pretty good antenna loop once I own a home.

Does anyone do Software Defined Radio? I would like to have a setup like this:

Be careful not to contact your father and change the past ultimately altering your present life.

I am, not very active recently but when I am I'm mainly on 2m and 440 repeaters.
I sold off all my radios a few years ago but I still have a kenwood th-f6a tri-band HT.
