I don't think so. You can listen (and you should listen to repeaters and hams a lot at first to get the lingo and technique) and if it's an emergency, you have it there. I certainly would not be the one to encourage you to key up illegally or anything, but it's the middle of the desert and there's no one around.

"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
