I like it very much.  Can't get much better phonetics than that, unless its Whiskey Tango Foxtrot....
Kids today don't know how easy they have it. When I was young, I had to walk 9 feet through shag carpet to change the TV channel.

KC3BXR checking in

Just joined this site so I figured I would say hi. I got my technician and general license over a year ago and I have done absolutely zilch when it comes to ham radio since haha.  I was laid off at the time and always wanted to get my ticket and since I had the time I figured why not.   The only radio I have so far is a Yaesu VX-8DR and a beofeng Amazon cheapie dual band.  As soon as money allows I hope to to get a HF rig to try to see how far across the world I can go. 

I also am actively searching for a dual band mobile to put in my truck so I can use down time at work to hone my skills a little bit.   I'm still learning about of ham radio because honestly I just studied to pass the test and didn't retain much of the knowledge.  >:(

Very informative post. Thank you for that.
