I typically stay on simplex just because I am selfish and only want to talk to RS folks when around town. I don't care to start conversations about what kind of cheese costco sells.
I'll start working the repeaters more and specifying that i'm looking for RS folks.
Tom and I chatted for a breif bit yesterday on ccon, but we were both a bit to far from the repeaters to transmit wewll so our conversation was limited. I stayed on simplex since we were travelling with HT's in the group... guess I should get some sort of a dual monitor capable radio for the 60 so it happens less.
