Votes And Opinions

    The Road Legal Four Wheel Drive Association and Corporation need the feedback from members on topics so that we may better our group to serve the riding public. In this section, we talk about things we may need to change or ideas to better ourselves through collaboration. 

    Keep in mind, some of these items have been archived for historical references and may not be an active item anymore. We feel it's important to show how we've grown through the years so others may learn from what we've done.

  • CB Radio

      CB Radio Topics for RL4WD members. CB is the official unlicensed communication method of RL4WD. We highly recommend starting with Amateur radio over CB for increased range, repeater use, weekly trail report nets, and more BUT many of us still use CB so these topics are covered in these forums.

  • Ham Radio

      Amateur Radio commonly referred to as Ham Radio is our primary communication device out on the trail. It offers the best range, most power, and internet/digital integrations. Our repeaters at events use Amateur Radio much like other clubs across the world.

    • Technician Class

        The 4X4 Amateur Radio Forum Area for Licensed Technician Class members. The FCC Technician License exam covers basic regulations, operating practices, and electronics theory, with a focus on VHF and UHF applications. Morse code is not required for this license. With a Technician Class license, you will have all ham radio privileges above 30 MHz. These privileges include the very popular 2-meter band. Technicians may also operate on the 80, 40 and 15 meter bands using CW, and on the 10 meter band using CW, voice and digital modes. - ARRL

    • General Class

        The General Class license is the second of three US Amateur Radio licenses. To upgrade to General Class, you must already hold a Technician Class license (or have recently passed the Technician license exam). Upgrading to a General license--which conveys extensive HF privileges—only requires passing a written examination. Once you do, the entire range of operating modes and the majority of the amateur spectrum below 30 MHz become available to you.

    • Extra Class

        General licensees may upgrade to Extra Class by passing a 50-question multiple-choice examination. No Morse code test is required. In addition to some of the more obscure regulations, the test covers specialized operating practices, advanced electronics theory, and radio equipment design. Non-licensed individuals must pass Element 2, Element 3 and Element 4 written exams to earn an Extra License. - AARL
