A friend just got his tech and general license, but only has access to a dual band mobile radio. I was hoping there might be a chance that we can link up (I'm about 20 miles north west of Philadelphia). It's 120 miles, so I'm thinking that direct RF to a repeater midway is going to be tough (I have steerable yagis, but all he's got is a jpole). Maybe a linked repeater? Neither of us have digital capability, and I was hoping to avoid echolink if at all possible.
