    Whiskey Five AIT. Got my ticket in 2006... General, but mainly on 2M on the local repeaters.

    Many Brothers at my lodge are ham operators. They keep asking me, but I haven't finished the study book.

    AF7JA here, Amateur Extra. That said, I don't have any station set up right now. I have a VHF/UHF radio in my auto and a handheld on my desk, that is about it.

    I am now at a regular computer, so I can add to this. Here is a picture of my trike as I pedaled from Kansas to Utah. I was way overloaded for a cycle tour. I also had to take some stuff to Utah. If I were to do it again (aka when I do it next), I would/will just Fed-Ex the unneeded gear.

    On that trip, I had a UHF radio, as the numbers on the triangle allude to. I also had an HF rig, but I didn't make any contacts with it. I happened to stumble onto an active repeater in Pueblo, CO. Later on (like two days later) I happened to hit a local chat group on 146.52, still in CO. I was with them for a few hours. I also had a ham stop and visit me when I was setting up camp in Tribune KS. In all, I didn't make many contacts, but it was a good trip with no unresolvable catastrophic issues.
