Radios installed

Sgtsandman, Nice install on your radios, which brand of quad band, Icom? Is it 6 & 2 meter, 400mhz and 70 cm? I'm only running a 2 meter and a dual band HT in my jeep, and a 40 channel cb.

I'm an old Army MARS operator, also prior Army RAT Rig Radio team chief, one of 3 MOS's. Never needed a Gen class license until now, miss being on HF. 73

SgtSandman,

Look up your local ham radio club. Most have Ham Tech cram classes, which are usually a one day class. They prepare you to for the Tech class license. After the instruction part of the class you will be able to take the Ham Radio Technician exam.

If there is no radio club, check out the ham radio "Technician" series by Gordon West, it consists of a book and also a CD's. Check out his website at www.gordonwestradioschool.com

Or you can order his book and cd's from Amazon.

Hope this helps you get on the air. I also used his study materials and took a local ham radio technicians class. Good Luck my friend!

I think I do remember, we still had 8 track players in our cars and trucks, we had long wip antennas for our cb's also or dual antennas mounted to the mirrors of our pick up trucks, which also had a gun rack with a fishing pool and a 30-30 in it, depending on where you lived....😃
