You just need something to take to SD, I have some stuff I could send over with permanent or temp mounts, CB or 2 meter.

Thanks Larry, yes for SD but need a portable for club runs. I chatted with a guy at work and he's got a line on a portable CB.

Paul, skip the CB and go straight to HAM. The last run I was on everyone had HAM but one guy... 7/8 rigs.

Clarity, distance and portability are hands down being won by HAM radios.

Paul, I have a portable CB you can use as well also a couple of rugged radios if they want to use vhf. just holler on your way through if it doesn't work out.

problem is the time crunch to get certified for HAM.

If you're good with memorization, hamexam.org has flashcards, practice exams, and the question pool. Spending an hour a day, most folks can memorize enough of the questions to pass the practice exams consistently within 1-2 weeks. If you're motivated, you can probably do it faster. Then the trick is then finding an exam. If you contact the local ham clubs and tell them your situation they may put together a special exam session for you.
