Thanks,

I heard you need to pass a typing test before they give you that permit, Link...fingers crossed for you!!

I have a Galaxy 959 CB with a 3,000 watt kicker...doubt it would reach you...but I do get some distance...and no permit required!

Why did the cb craze die out? We use to have a base unit in the house and one in my dad's car.

The morse code is not a part of the license anymore. That is one reason way I’m going after it and the other reason is because I like join the c.e.r.t. Greg I have a nice cb setup. That how I got in to this and no one ever said I needed typing before you LOL. Greg would you like to sale that kicker?

Chris,

I have my license. My call sign is KD8AVQ!

Good luck to you. Study hard and you'll pass easily. Gordon West makes some great study aids for the test. I highly recommend them!
