I would love some help programing my 7900. I have read the manual a few times, I think I'm reading the English version but I can't tell. I only use 2 or 3 frequencies and I just dial them in via the handset.

Incredible. I may have to get a 3 as well, just cause.

I am going to spend more time with Brad's programming cable this week, if you make the ham & eggs run I will hopefully be able to download some channels to these things.

Same here, have to join the 21st wheeling century sooner or later. $35 made it easy. Thanks for the heads up, Wes.

Steve, are you studying? Cool. There's enough interest in a ham class and test, I need to schedule it. Won't happen before Cruise Moab and probably not before Rubithon, but maybe.

Not sure this is the best first radio (low power and cryptic even for a ham radio), but they are cheap and disposable.

Studying? For what? You'll just tell me everything I need to know, right? Just cancelled the UV-3R order and ordered the UV-5R after reading the reviews at Amazon. $40 with free shipping, so what the heck. Won't be here in time for the Ham 'n Eggs thing but will be there to watch.

Well, yeah, the club ham class is pretty much 3 days of teaching what you need to know to pass the test. I don't think there's been anyone not pass on the first try that has been through the class, either. Pretty sure.

Are you coming up Saturday? That would be keen.
