Cool stuff, Nak, great link to mud.

Got the study guide as a hand-me-down = Free

Test = $14

1st radio was a Yeasu VX-170 2 meter hand held, I printed a coupon off of Yeasu's web site AND HRO had them on sale. Ended up being about the same price I paid for a Uniden CB, peak & tweaking and having the SO-239 replaced with a coax pig tail a-la Slee's tech write up = $80-90

Bargain Bin Antenna = $20.

Being able to talk all over the world w/ 5watts = Priceless
