Not to mention, just re-tune an old CB antenna, 10m is slightly higher frequency than CB so you can trim off length and make it work. All Techs get privileges in a small segment of 10m on 28.300-28.500MHz up to 200W and soon 6m will work well, everyone gets to use that. The repeater I worked into New York would be for General, Extra or Advanced. So upgrade!

"Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security. " --Albert Einstein
