Tonight I'm going to a training meeting to get involved with ARES. This will allow me to work as a volunteer radio operator in the event of emergency. I still only have a Technician license, which means I'm restricted to local operation (UHF / VHF bands) but I'm hoping to upgrade to General in the coming year.
I want to post more, but I'm putting off getting the housework done, and that needs to happen. A messy house hurts my head.
