I arranged with friend Randy Cassingham, KØRCC, to do two demonstrations, first “simplex,” meaning radio to radio, and second on the repeater, meaning there’s a third radio system called a repeater that’s between us.
After studying the book, you can return to the list of lessons here. By the way, the background is an aspen forest atop Uncompahgre Plateau that I took while following a single-track trail on my motorcycle.
