Yeah, arsenio and I were using HT's on the jubilee trip and they worked well beyond the cb range. Shawn and i used them on the SSRT A couple weeks ago. I too would encourage anyone out in the woods to get a license and get on the air.

It's alot easier than you would think.

I do some running with a group that uses marine band in the high desert. those things make some miles, and I don't have to take a test.

Marine band has its own set of regulations. I don't think they have any repeater access.

There are some linked repeaters down I5, I have been listening to guys in Medford and Corvalis on my way into work and said hi once...from Sandy, on a handheld. I don't think you can do that on a marine band.
I also don't think you could make a contact with someone in South America either Cool

I agree, Marine band is not nearly as powerful as the Hamms./ uh, Ham. But for what they are in for them I was blown away by the distance they worked.

Hello!
My name is Marek,I'm fresh Bronco II owner from Poland.Fresh in Bronco,more experienced in off road driving and 4x4 at all.Before it was Russian and Japanese cars.Now time for something from U.S.
I'm licensed HAM too,from 10 years.A few pictures on:qrz.com, inside MQ160,but it's history now.
I've got Bronco II from a few days,so far I try to localize all rusty spots and
to fix them as fast as it it will be possible.
More serious body repairing will be during winter time.
regards
Marek sq4ixm

Hello Marek, this site is more geared towards the 66-77 breed but am glad you found us. Rust is no fun.
I have made a few Poland contacts lately. The bands have been weird...three months ago I wasn't able to hear many places around you, but have been hitting Finland, Italy, Svalbard, Latvia, in the last couple weeks...
I checked out your QRZ page, nice pictures!

Hope to hear you on the radio sometime.

Hello Shawn!
Early Bronco,that is right,I did'n notice during registrstion.I need rather Broncocorral or so,anyway nice to meet another HAM and 4x4 driver.
To make QSO with USA is possible even using modest setup,of course Big Guns are very strong here,but sometimes I talk to someone who has simple dipole or operating from mobile.
Looking forward to hear You.
