This guide covers things a bit faster, for me, it was harder to listen to because of the little bit of background noise. Still, a really great way to get ready for your test. "Everything you need to know to get your technician class ham radi...
Gordon West is a staple in HAM radio education. He's fun to listen to, does a great job explaining things, and has a host of materials you can use to help pass your test and more so actually, understand what you're studying for. His examples real...
Comet makes some great antennas based on the reviews so Eric made up this nmo bracket for the hood of a Jeep Wrangler JL. Installation was super easy and it looks really nice. Amazon SBB5 listing - https://amzn.to/2YG0kqt Amazon Browning NMO l...

Sure, cell phones are great, but when you have a convoy of rigs on the trails, those instantly become pretty much useless. I just wanted to write this as it's been an interesting journey with the Jeep in terms of radio and how much I've learned. ...

I found this video interesting. This video helped me understand how the ground and metal plane work in relation to broadcast of a radio signal. Maybe you'll find it helpful when deciding on where you place your antenna. I'm very much a fan of hoo...

While this radio is more than the other Stryker, I like that if you do use it in the CB band, you can turn it down to the legal 4 watts. Having AM, FM, Sideband, etc. this radio is a home run! Amazon has some great reviews and Q&A - https:/...

Ok here are my initial thoughts. I need to have CB, but I'm also getting licensed for amateur radio. Our folks talk on 2-meter bands usually so at first, I wanted 1 radio to do it all. After a bunch of looking, nothing really does that well and the q...

Eric Baier of Topsy Products came up with a nice hood mount system for the JL. The first, in fact. This was version 1. The new version is thicker and has a unique design. I'm testing both on my JL right now and over the last few months, I can say, I ...

So we wanted to try a satellite system to see if that would work for our communication needs. I mean, it has global coverage right? Well... sorta. First, these things are crazy expensive. Like, $1,500-$2,000 so that's the biggest drawback. Second, th...

Adam Harden became a dealer for these radios. While nice for places you'd have coverage, after testing, they don't work well for what we do in the sticks. Details - The RT4 PTT Smartphone is very robust Motorola-style and license-free radio, and ...

Okay so we have the Motorola to Beartooth the CB and amateur radio. Jeremy Wolff and I were talking last week about the feasibility of having one radio for all frequencies. While it appears possible on 10 and 11 meter (is that right? Lol), I would ha...

Motorola just came out with a Beartooth killer. A $50 radio that does everything the Beartooth unit does and it has 35 MILES of range with the off-grid smartphone/mesh network. That's pretty incredible and I'm a big fan of the Motorola antennas and r...

Eric Baier asked if there was a net radio that did all... Donald Mascarella then asked it 2 weekends ago too... The Rfinder K1 is all-in-one Transceiver (VHF or UHF) analogue and DMR Tier 2, with an embedded 4G/LTE Android smartphone. Yes, there ...

I like that in the nav, I can record trails, but it's not useful if I can't export them. Has anyone been able to export the files?...
Who uses Ham on the trails? I'm thinking that this would be the best communication radio for groups over a large area (which most trails are). When we went to South Dakota, it was a real eye-opener that many rigs don't even have a CB, but rather ...
