We hope you have a fun and safe Thanksgiving with your loves ones.
I recently got a radio that I have been playing around with but there isn’t much for traffic in my area and while I can receive a few repeaters I can not transmit to them so I quickly got board and started looking for other things I can do with it.
Thats when I remembered some 2 way radios my brother got me a while back for hunting and such. I knew it had 3 channels but I had no idea what frequency they used or if it fell in the range of my new toy. Not knowing much about the 2 ways I did find a FCC ID on the back of each hand held.
After doing a quick search on the FCC ID I was delighted to see the 2 way radios operated in my toys range 🙂 So I punched the frequency in my ham radio as fast as I could, turned on the 2 way and started transmitting on my ham. I was over joyed to here my sexy voice loud and clear on the 2 way 😀
Now this is nothing new. Its not even hacking, but it sure feels like it. It was fun going from not knowing anything about it to making it work. So that was my first little adventure with radio, I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.
First, many thanks to The Meetupery for hosting our meeting. You guys rock! Klaiviel got things going with his thingy that he plans on trying to make more of “I hope to get one!”. Then we went around the room and found out what everyone is up to. I made a few announcements that will be repeated here on a later date and Ngharo talked about his big plans for the new and improved dc414 PBX! I can’t wait for that to get done 🙂 Then dc5304 attempted to show us a super sweet SDR but ended up showing us how to brick one 😛 Then we talked about a old ass UHF/VHF scanner that you programmed with crystals I found at a yard sale. The one I got had 8 ports but only 5 crystals 4 of which had been identified with the fifth one unknown. We attempted to find the frequency of it but did not have all the right equipment. Anyway I thought it was a cool little piece of radio history so we gave it away along with a few other things. Here are a few pictures from the meeting. Congrats to the big winner college boy!
