    Didnt find much in search related to my questions, so here goes. As a kid (7 - 10 YO) I had one of those little battery powered CB radios with the cord mic that I had fun with, especially when on family trips. Well, that was 30 years ago or more and I'ld forgotten the little that i knew. I...

    http://gotenna.com/ Just saw this and thought if it works as they say they do it might be worth the money to stay in touch at your Bol. If you cant click the link it basically says you can keep in touch with just text as long as the other person has the same antenna. No wifi or signal needed...

    Hi All I just finished a long writeup on my entire Radio Communication plan. Its everything I have learned/thought of in the past year or so, condensed into a dream/to do list. I would copy it into this post, but none of the pictures are copying.... You can read it here...

One old timer taught me that spending $1 on the antenna is the equivalent to spending $10 on the radio. Many times you see stations on qrz.com with $2500 rigs and amps and then...

It has a male connector on the end and from all the photos I see of magnetic mounts they are all male connectors as well. Now...

    Still fairly new to amateur radio (Tech.), I've started some antenna projects. Specifically thinking about your various TSHTF scenarios and possible approaches. I'm struggling with whether I want to put a large antenna on my roof or not, for two chief reasons: (1) possibility of attracting...

    How do you improve the quality of signal receptivity in an emergency radio? How do you improve or modify the antenna on an emergency AM/SW1/SW2/FM radios? I have a Grundig FR-200 for example. Would it be possible to tie the emergency radio to a roof antenna, or a longer/military grade antenna...

    Is there any way to boost the range of a Motorola Talkabout t9500. This walkie-talkie claims to already have a range of "35 km", but I checked it out and that's only if you are transmitting from an area of very high elevation (mountain) to an area at about sea level. The range on flat gorund is...
