Congratulations Mike! Not hard to combine them, although I've not had much luck on 2 meters while travelling. HF in the camp is great with something like a Buddipole antenna. Also, ARRL Field Day is coming up, June 22-23. If you've never been, find a local club or group and go! Good chance to experience what full airwaves sound like! I'll be taking the Scamp
this year, quite a few folks bring an RV. I think the ARRL site has a search for nearby Field Day operations.
Lisa, I know what you mean. My friends keep hounding me to just go take the test, know I can pass, but I have to drive 60 miles each way to take a test. Too many other hobbies.
