Welcome aboard to you and your YL. They're so much more understanding when they're licenced! Jump right in and join the frey, unlike some forums we actually like it when new people join!

Glad to have you wonder in here. Have you also checked an RV forun....www.irv2.com?

Look down into the Clubs and rallies then south central section and there is a thread about a Texas/Oklahoma rally the first weekend in Mat in Thackerville. Me and at least one other ham will be there. Tom lives in Sandsprings, Ok. Love to have you join the fun.

Hi Mark,
yes the good freq is 147.06 repeater can be used plus or minus w/141.3 tone.
that is the SCARS group of which we are members. Norman is 10 miles South of Moore,Ok where we live. We usually have quite a few post office hams in here. By the way I took a look at your web site it looks very good. You can contact me at [email protected] and we can try to get set-up to meet.
