    Mike,

    Chat about Radio Controlled hobbies, including land, air and water.

    While I don't do this, those holding an Amateur Radio Technician
    Class license fly model aircraft, with the frequencies on the 6 meter
    band. At one of the area parks, a group gathers there on a weekly
    basis, to fly their planes out by the lake.

    I don't get on the air that much locally. The last several
    years, I'd be constantly interfered with, even if just passing
    routine traffic. There are several clubs in the central Arkansas
    area, but for years, there's petty bickering between each other,
    especially on "who does the better job during Skywarn Severe
    Weather". To me, in an emergency (i.e. a tornado outbreak, and
    we've had some of those in the region, such as on Jan. 21, 1999,
    with 56 tornadoes, most of those in just 6 hours), you need to
    drop all club affiliations, etc., and work toward passing traffic
    to aid in disaster recovery.

    I'm just 20 miles south of Tampa, and my understanding is that they get a LOT of
    lightning strikes. When Del Webb was planning out community, the study showed that it
    doesn't generally rain that much here so he called it Sun City Center. He was wrong!

    We have a volunteer Emergency Squad, and they can provide us with a 2-way radio for
    $15.00 in case of emergencies. That is the closest I will ever get to HAM, although we
    do have a Ham Radio club in our community. We are going to purchase the radio soon.
    It would be a great thing to have, as well as the battery-operated radio which we
    already have.

    I can see why you are so into HAM, living where you do. Have you had to use it for
    emergencies? I guess the answer would be a resounding YES.

    Mike,

    Chat about Radio Controlled hobbies, including land, air and water.

    Like any other hobby, it can get expensive.

    When thinking of the cars, I think of the old wooden Pinewood Derby
    cars I built back in Cub Scouts over 50 years ago.

    Mike,

    Chat about Radio Controlled hobbies, including land, air and water.

    One of the deals that ham radio operators can do is fly model aircraft. They're controlled by frequencies in the 6 meter band. But, I think they
    have special batteries on board to fly them. I've just seen them done,
    but never actually inquired about them.
