Mark, do you know my dad? He is located in Sonora, so just down the road from you.......That whole group gets together on 2 meter Tues and Thurs a.m. while at the local McDonalds and talk about what ever hammers talk about (antenna issues, putting up new masts, how many radios found at the local swap, lol). I have been around it for 40 years now (damn!) and he wants me in, need to get there.

His call is not familiar. Paul Hoisington does not ring a bell either. I was more active 20 years ago when I lived in San Jose. Sonora is close by straight line distance, but about a 2 1/2 hour drive from where I live. I would encourage you to get your license. It is a little easier now that the Morse Code requirement has been abandoned. I even got my wife licensed back in the 90's. (who is you dad going to leave his good stuff to if you don't get licensed?)

....and I think that is why he wants me to, lol. There goes my little corner of the world if that happens. There is a group up here in my area, I sent them emails twice to no avail, but that was a couple years ago, will need to do it again. It would be cool to surprise him just for the heck of it, but they I would see him pack up the 5-6 portables, the SWAN system, and oh, don't forget I think he has one that still runs off of tubes, lol.

I have had my license since a while back. I don't use it while on the bike though I wish I could. So for now, I'm strictly a Caged Ham. :D

Someday I may try to figure it out but only if I get even more involved in it.

dunno if I have posted here before or not?

back in my college days, I ran on 40 meter CW mobile with a Vibroplex bug while driving from home to the university, a 45 minute one way drive. and we have cellphone users now who can't stay in their own lane.

but I will not, put a ham rig on my bike.
1 second's worth of distraction and you can be seriously dead.

K5AWO licensed in 1958.....
that makes me a noobie :lol:
