    Hey all,
    question: CMCC requires you to have HAM or CB. I have neither. Should I just get a handheld CB (like Midland 75-822) for CMCC?
    • I read the page later in this club house that CLCC uses GMRS or HAM. I have dome MOTO GMRS/FRS radios. Do you actually use them, or is it all HAM nowadays?
    • Will do HAM sooner than later since it seems much better, but not sure that I can swing getting the exam done by 7/11 CMCC (out of town this wkend).
    If I do CB, any experience about the handhelds without an external antenna? looks like there are mag mounts cheapest, but would rather not toss $50 or so if the handhelds work o.k. on group trail runs.

    Unfortunately, my father in law is in ailing health, so every Saturday, and some Sundays, Laura and I have to attend to his needs. I'll make it back to wheeling one day. I hope you all have a great trip!

    Yes it has. Unfortunately, it is going to be longer still. I'll raise a few Miller Lites over that weekend for a virtual cheers with you. I look forward to the pictures, and running narrative I hope you all post up during the event.

    I have some loaner CB Radios you can use for CMCC. No need to buy one.

    The club has 6 loaner GMRS radios just for this reason. You are welcome to use one. Most/all of the club members use the GMRS radios on the trail and during convoys to & from events.

    We are having a Ham class & test on Saturday in Springfield if you can make it.

    Thanks. I'll take you up on that offer to borrow a CB. More funds to put towards HAM (-:

    I am in Charlottesville this weekend. Found the ARRL site. May try to squeeze in the test 7/8 in Gaithersburg.

    I’m registered. Not deadline oriented. Just a lazy, procrastinating old bastard.

    Tomorrow, Sunday June 10th, is the deadline to register for CMCC and still get a shirt, sticker and BBQ dinner. After tomorrow you'll have until June 30th to register with no shirt, sticker or dinner included (for the same price)... so get a move on folks! After June 30th you are out of luck - there will be no registrations accepted after that and there will be no walk-ins accepted at the event.

    I'm seriously considering signing up. Need to find a campground with 30A service to keep the baby cool and hopefully some MT bike trails nearby to keep the wife happy.
