    I have a go-light ..goes wonky when I key up with the big dual band (antenna), but doesn’t with the COMPACtenna.

    The COMPACtenna (is) working surprisingly well… I was skeptical about the antenna at first but so far so good…
    …and it doesn’t cause any issues in getting into my relatively low garage.
    I love the COMPACtennas, mine is mounted on a mag mount.
    I have a Compactenna that I can either mount to a crossrail, or I’d prefer to just mount it right into the track.

Amateur radio — also known as Ham radio — is the best overall way for preppers to keep in contact during an emergency.  THE PREPARED

    THE PREPARED: Emergency Preparedness – Survival Skills – HAM Radio


THE SCOUTS:  A very important part of the maintenance and growth of Ham Radio.
And Ham Radio similarly vitally serves in so many good deed acts…
…To serve their communities by providing public service and emergency communications.
From volunteering in communications and other help in such as local marathons, to large disasters in the world,
Amateur Radio is a wonderful fellowship community.
