I’ve always had an interestÂ in it but now I have time to do something aboutÂ it. signed up with a local club going to do myÂ fundamental examÂ with them. hoping to get myÂ full licensesÂ in a few years. when I tell this to people, they always ask the same question why now we have internet whyÂ do we need this etc.
We now use the internetÂ for everything even all the phones I think the even mobile phone will be soon moving to data only and we use voice over data option on that some already use. which makes cost-effectiveÂ for everyone. but we need an alternative way of communicating that doesn’t use internet. more people who have this is better.Â it’s just figuringÂ things out how all works will be interesting.
I’m thinking to getÂ Kenwood TH-D74E DigitalÂ after I pass my exam. I know I can get cheap ChineseÂ ones but this looks nice. and have a digital mode call D-Start which lets you access the internet through the reader.Â I have a D-start reaper very close as well. If I’m bord on analog I can spend time on digital doing different things. It has so many fecturesÂ and yes also plays FM radioÂ 🙂
I will update my call sign etc ones I have them
