Taking the test next week, Strictly RX till then. Signals aren't bad I can get the WAN repeater system and local 5-0's 70cm repeater. Cant tell ya more till I get my License.Welcome to the forum!
I love the Baofeng radios. I have the UV-5R+ and I use it to check into the 2 meter net when I'm operating portable at my girlfriend's house.
Do you have a radio license? I've talked to several guys out of PA and they all have nice signals out of that part of the country.
