I know I am not alone in the opinion that some form of reliable communications is as an essential component of outfitting as any other that we discuss here. Amateur radio is not the only, nor best choice for everyone, but does have a lot of features to offer that many are not even aware of. Over the course of the past several years, I have kept a list of the licensed hams that hang out on Mud, as well as a few other Cruiser heads that are not active here... but I know the list is incomplete (there are 20~25 that I know of). Now > 50 - Jun 06... and NOW over 100 - 31 Dec 06 So here is your chance to identify yourself all in one place! The idea behind this is partially just curiosity - to see how many of us there are here - but also to have a contact list so we can bounce ideas around to better understand and improve communications installations & mods for wheeling safety, expeditioning, and of course for general communications (and, of course, the fun of it ). And, as a point of reference for others who want to get more info or get licensed. So, all of you licensed hams... post up! If for some reason you do not want to go public with your call sign, please PM me with the info so I can keep you in the loop (in confidence). If you have HF capability, please say so - there is the possibility we might be able to get an informal gathering together from time to time. Thanks to all!
