    Thanks for the offer. I have also joined the Aeronautical Center Radio club. The folks there seem to be really helpful. I have a hand held and will be putting up a base VHF/UHF antenna next. A base/mobile stations and a HF antenna will be later.

    Interesting observation, I went to a fireworks display today in an area that is usually fairly sparsely populated (cell company has not built up capacity). During the fireworks display, this area was very heavily populated. My cell phone's voice calls did not work, my wireless internet connection did not work, my SMS messages only worked sporadically. There are still occasions when a ham radio could be very valuable for making emergency contacts.
