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!
