    And the cool thing is you don't need to learn Morse code anymore for entry level licensing but I guess if the grid went down there would be no need for a ham license and people will be using all the frequencies available. Certain frequencies are more conducive to long distance communication. I wonder if Bill has a setup down in Ecuador that can reach out and touch us?

    Just seen this:



    A classic example of how useful amateur radio still is.

    (I've got a beacon running undetectable below the noise level on 10 MHz being picked up across Europe and N America. To be honest it doesn't carry much useful data, but it's only 0.4 watts - equivalent of a torch/flashlight bulb - and shows what can be done surreptitiously if required!)
