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...

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...

So we're getting ready to sign our first trails and we need to improve upon the rating program in order to give us more information. Right now, the system is too subjective. I'd like to make it more black and white without getting too complex. ...
