    Today............ is ICE CREAM DAY!

    Once a year I bulk up on cubed ice and make 8-10 gallons of ice cream.

    It will be a great day when our schools have all the money they need, and politicians have to start selling candy bars and holding car washes to finance their campaigns.

    Started investigating ham radio. Husband has convinced me that we spend way too much money on landline phone. But I like the thought of being redundant with respect to how we can call out. So we've reached a compromise. I get to learn something new AND get a new toy, he gets to save us money.

    So-- suggestions on where to begin? And why do I need a license, really?

    If you only receive signals, you don't.

    But I want to be able to contact county offices and emergency management and whoever's out there in the world when the cell towers go down.

    The main reason I know of to have a license is to keep ham frequencies from turning into CB. Ham is mostly self regulated and violators can get massive fines from the FCC.

    My wife declared, many years ago, that CB is not allowed in any of our vehicles. Have you listened lately?

    But the reason to get licensed early is ham is not easy to work. It takes practice. So in an emergency, when cell phone towers are out, you still have your ham gear and can give/get information a whole lot easier. I have had my license well over 20 years. One starts with a technicians license which mainly is access to local repeaters. It covers much more distance than a CB and the quality of radio waves is much cleaner. At least in my experience. To get further radio contacts one needs to have a general license and HF ham gear.

    I may be wrong, but in an emergency, I think you're allowed to transmit.

    You are not wrong. It is allowed. Even today if it's a life threatening event, anyone can transmit on any frequency. Part of the issue though is knowing what frequencies will get you help. Emergency responders are on an entirely different set of frequencies. With some handheld's from China, and knowing how to set it up, one can access those frequencies.
