Ham Radio

So after talking about doing it for a long while, finally went and got my Ham License, curious as to who else out there has their license and has it set up in their Powerstroke

At this point yes. I want to get my general license but it'll probably have to wait.

I've started studying a little bit for extra, I've got a Tardy FT-857D, one of these days I want to get a multiband antenna for it, but it'll have to wait

I've been studying slowly for general and extra so when I do go to take the test I might be able to pass both of them.

It's a fun hobby, plus I like it from a prepper standpoint also.
