Hey guys, Haro doesnt know about Amateur radio, education is in order.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amateur_radio

Yes, CB actually evolved (some say stolen) from the Amateur Radio Service.

A few nights ago, I had a nice contact on 10 meters (28mhz) with a gent in Tennessee, running a small mobile unit running on a nearly dead marine battery. I was running about 5 watts output into a very simple antenna called a dipole (homemade) run along the back window of my house.

Lots of things are possible, such as Slow Scan TV, (sending a signal from a camera over the airwaves), voice comms, satellite comms, even bouncing a signal off the MOON! (called moonbounce or EME, stands for Earth, Moon Earth.)

The internet has made all of this a sure thing, so its boring that way. But doing it with a signal thru the airwaves, using equipment that might be homebuilt is a challenge!

I gotta learn about that, I know very little about Echolink. Did you catch that sweet 10 meter opening a few nights ago? seemed to be mostly east west.

Also for Haro, if you look WAAAAYYYY down at the Wiki link, it lists a few famous radio operators, he isnt listed, but astronaut, Owen, K Garriott, was born and raised in my hometown of Enid, OK. The main highway thru town is named after him.

Some operators also enjoy contacts with the space station, although I know little about that also
