Hello everybody, absolutely love this forum it keeps me up way to late at night!! I have always been intrigued with radios since I was a young kid listing to my Granddad talking to people from other countries (way before the internet). I have installed and programmed a lot of point to point wireless radios, licensed and unlicensed, and deal a lot with AP’s in the 2.4 and 5Ghz range. Now I would like to start getting into the world of Ham radio!!! I have started studying but have not taken the test yet, hopefully soon!!!
