Amateur Radio Equipment

Getting up and Running can cost very little, but please get in touch with your local radio club and get licenced!

The basic kit can be as simple as a Baofeng UV/5R

These work on two bands, both FM and I have had contacts of up to 40 miles from the tops.

Another Radio I use is the Yaesu FT-817ND

Which is a more expensive option, but because it has HF (short wave) it can under the right conditions reach anywhere in the world. Mine is attached to a linked dipole from SOTABEAMS
