  • Conundrum: lol, they're contagious and more lights coming on, worrying to see the oil pressure indicator and also the windshield washer fluid lights, however I'll just wait and see if it goes away when things dry out. Good thing I took it through emissions this morning. Never Fails. lol
    October 02, 2018, 11:49:37 AM
  • Conundrum: Wow, with all the rain I've been in as well as flooding in the X on Fat Tire, I have a new issue. Set light blinking rapidly and goes away after restarting the engine. I did a little research and I guess the cruise actuator can get nasty and seems plausible since I went through a puddle on purpose on the right hand side and that made the set light for cruise start flashing again. I'll check it out after the rain stops. lol Have fun and be safe out there everyone.

Ham Study
« on: July 20, 2016, 05:55:37 PM »
There use to be a YouTube channel HAM test prep, but it no longer seems to exist. Do you know of any other video based learning courses? I would like get this knocked out by EOY.

I wasn't aware those classes had disappeared.  I looked on youtube and found this guy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fEWmiMotimY seems to do a good job of summarizing the basic ideas of the book.    Most importantly go through a practice test before taking the real thing, it'll give you an opportunity to find out what you missed.  I found one here.   Feel free to ask questions if you have trouble.  I also think it was helpful for me to just get a radio, program it, and listen in.  Once you have programmed a radio you probably have the majority of what the test is asking down.

Check the hamstudy.org site, it's really easy and so long as I visit it often, I remember more. There are lots of tests opportunities this month too. I'd like to get this done this month or next.

Good question to be asked in probably another thread, but I'm not sure. I do know it can come in handy with signal being an issue on cb sometimes.

I think there are 5 or so of us.  I know there are a lot of people interested and working towards it as well.  I see it as being advantageous for anyone who is offroading.  The HAM repeaters can act as a lifeline if the need ever arises.  Of course there are other options, gps transmitter or sat phone.  But a lot of the community is going HAM.
