Default Hammin' it up on the way home

Nakman was kind enough to not only lend me a couple HT's to monkey with, but also lent me a 2800 and we did a quick mount up in the 60. THANKS!
I'll be commuting home from Lodo to L'ville on 146.460 if anyone is out there. Even though it's not much different than CB, I feel like I need to practice the ettiquette a little.

What times are you on the road. I can never find anybody when I am driving on either simplex or duplex.

Default typical drive times...Tues/Thurs

Tuesdays and Thursdays my non-kid-drop-off days (M,W,F I drive the Subaru). So when I'm not riding the bus, I'll be in the cruiser. I'll usually hit the road around 5:30-6ish. I'll post up if I drive on Thursday.

Default cool!

I'm going to that guy's house to look at the FT-8900r after work (4:30ish). I'll give a shout out on 146.460 when I hit the road back to Louisville. I'll be playing with low vs. higher power on the 2m radio to check the reach.

Shawn, it wouldn't hurt to do some chatting on the local repeaters if nobody's available to chat on simplex. Just something to think about. I've been thinking about throwing my HT in my Tundra for the time being and see what it does.

Default Good idea!

What's a good local repeater to hit on the way home? Colo. Connection? another one to monitor? (145.145??)

I was on 146.460 from 5-6 with no contact and also on the CC 145.310 I believe. Spoke to about half a dozen of people from Co Springs to Ft. Collins.

Ever since I have been working on Johns house I have been monitoring both frequencies from 4-6:30 about depending on when I leave. I figured I would Dave at least since I know his radio is always on.

Of course today I was watching the Thursday night football previews on the phone so I had plenty of company.

What repeaters do you guys use the most or monitor more?

I was on the road after 6...pretty much on 146.460. I then flipped to the 145.145 and heard a little chatter. I also heard those folks on the CO Conn. from the springs.

Sweet! I brought my HT to work this morning, am going to charge the battery during the day and hopefully catch someone this afternoon. It's kinda hard though, my commute is like 10-15 minutes. I think I'm going to split today sometime around 4:15 or so.
