    PP Ham Radio Group

In the spirit of organizing local groups within PP, I am hereby proposing that we amateur radio licensees form such a group. I have an Amateur Extra ticket and equipment to operate on HF, VHF and UHF bands. I am located on the US East Coast, just north of Boston MA.

The objective will be to co-ordinate and schedule on-air meetings and potentially provide emergency communications for the PP tribe.

If you have a ham license, please PM me with your callsign, ticket level and brief details of your capability. I will put together a spreadsheet and circulate a copy to all respondents.

Once we have a group identified, it will be a fun and educational experience to try to link up on-air.

Truthseeker,

We were all newbies at first. Please join the group anyway. You will be part of the planning and, when you get your general license, you will be already up to speed.

In any event, you might find you share a repeater with another PP ham. That would be a great start to our proposed network.

PM sent.

Hello, My name is Jeanie , Technician K6VLY, We used to have a Ham Radio club here, Ectar the old Post Navel Graduate School, I live in Monterey County, in a small rural area called Prunedale. We don’t have a base station anymore. All I have is hand held radios. I plan to work on taking my General soon. I passed it once years ago but did not master the Morse code requirement. Life changed and work and Son took more of my time. Now I am fully retired and very frustrated with how our world is going to hell. Ham radio may be our only communication they cannot take away from us. Please let me know how I can help. I love Peak Prosperity and saw how Nazi utube just removed one of his videos.
‘Thank you for your effort let me know if I can help.
sincerely

B Jeanie Whitmore

count me in

I am not very active (spend most my time on hardware development) but am readying 17 meter 2 element vertical beams to cover the eastern side of the US on the greyline (probably about 30 minutes sunrise, and also sunset).

I have a General but I don’t have an HF antenna yet. Just the radio. I am new and presently still learning the basics. I’m putting up a 26’ vertical this week so that I can finally hit the local repeaters. (I’m surrounded by mountains and my 5w HT doesn’t do the job) What do people think about using Wires-X Fusion, etc. as a way to link up?
