Thanks for the welcome message.
I am in the WET side of Oregon, been here for a little over a month and think it has rained or some time of precipitation every day. The good news is I am starting to grow webbed feet and gills already!
I have been on this sight for a few years but had to change names when I signed back up this time. I think my previous name was terrypen but not positive. I was in the Arizona chapter before but after losing my job and trying the truck driving industry for a year, we decided to move to Rainier, OR to be closer to my wife's parents and brother.

You can view my "blog" via the link in my signature. Anyone got any motivation they can loan me to get the truck running... I started out trying to do an aggressive running restore but now I just need to get it running so I can drive it.

I'm going to guess from the lack of response what the answer is.
What band do you use?

Ummm, yeah.. the responses were deafening...

I hold an Amateur Extra class license, so I use most of them. I've never been on 160Meters, 6Meters, or 220cm... nor any of the Microwave bands... My radios, amp, and tuners are in storage until I can get a full time job or end up just diving into the storage unit.
