What valley could you be where you can't receive THORODIN??

Hey all, Tim here in El Paso county. Just started playing around with a small handheld ham. I have found some amateur freqs here on radio reference, and a few other freqs that i know of for my work. But nothing exciting... Anyone know of any good freqs to listen to. I am hoping to get my tech here soon so i can start keying up some conversations.

Default Glad to Be Here

My name is Ken, moved out here a few years ago from NJ.

I was a volunteer firefighter, chief officer for a suburban department in Northwestern NJ. My dad was a firefighter and it was natural that I joined when I was 16 as a "Junior Firefighter" in 1986. Served all the ranks over the 20 years I was there. Highlights from my time there: I was in the officer seat for our response to the 911 attack in NYC but got turned around on the way there. Also responded to Hurricane Katrina with the NJSP Decon Task Force.

At the same time, I was a firefighter and eventually a District Warden with the NJ Forest Fire Service. Yes, we have forests and woods. My territory included a section of the Appalachian Trail and National Park Service lands in Northwestern NJ. We dug a lot of handline and drip-torch work.. I also was deployed with Type IIA handcrews a bunch of times to fight fire in MT, UT, ID and OR. Was a great experience and I loved the western US.

I also worked the "Catfish Firetower" on the Appalachian Trail. Great experience!

So, here I am. I moved to Uninc Arapahoe and love CO.

I listen on a bunch of different Uniden Scanners, I have a great "fire tower" view from the Tech Center looking out towards the mountains and a good stretch of I25. So, if you need to triangulate a smoke, give me a call! (No joke, I have binoculars, a compass and a map!) No Osborne firefinder, but I'll make do.
