But they actually have and shipped my radio that I’ve been waiting almost 2 months for. It comes this saturday.
Woo! Now I gotta figure out where to put it...
Pretty excited to have this though, 50 watt dual band (2 meter/70cm) analog/digital radio with APRS (automatic data packets) and GPS. I wanted this radio specifically for that last feature as I can turn it on and have my family check in on my location online anytime, even places with zero cell coverage. Obviously, Im not going to leave it on all the time.
I already have an antenna on the roof that is...okay. I bought a little speaker and I already have a place picked out for my mic. To be honest I probably won’t use it a ton since none of my travel party has their license but it is fun to have on road trips so I can chat with folks up and down the rockies.
As a bonus I got my company employee appreciation gift yesterday, a blanket with some of the cringiest marketing I’ve ever seen. So that’s nice.
My birthday present from my mom arrived several days early and...i already know what it is because she used my email as the shipping email. So excited to have a 2nd angle grinder! This one battery powered for mobile crap fixing.
no more swapping between cutting and grinding discs for this guy!
