I have one somewhere in the attic. Do you need a license to operate HAM radios?

I used to catch skip on a base station CB back home before they put up cell towers

No problem, @Jpat. It's easy to do, well except for the Extra/element 4 and it's just plain tough. Look for a local HAM club and check into either classes or do it yourself studies and then test at a local club. Most are eager to help. Books are available on Kindle and it only costs 15 dollars to take the test.

We did it for emergency communications as we live in a cell phone dead zone.

thats smart thinking

I grew up in a small town with no cell. We had CB base stations and TMR emergency radios
