Nothing warms my heart like the smell of gunpowder

Yaesu is a great radio
Look into meshtasticCan you provide a brief explanation of a linked system?
I briefly researched it, but the hands-on info on how to connect, etc. I didn't find.
Repeater, links, not sure how all that is related.
(obviously not an operator but am interested in learning more)
Thanks for the info. I have never heard of anyone getting busted.Yes, it's usually a heavy fine. From what I understand (which is very little), they tend to be doing something blatantly wrong and disruptive to incur the wrath of the FCC (more so, other ham operators who are the ones who usually contact the FCC).
Good looking outI witnessed the problems of using Beofang radios operating on a MURS frequency recently during a training exercise at Camp Shelby. The amount of disruption from others, using a MURS frequency, made it necessary to use alternate frequencies. While I don't know the power level being used, the interference was almost certainly from outside the boundaries of the military installation.
I agree with you on a time when laws on this subject won't matter. I am one of several in my circle that have these to coordinate movement to "The Alamo" when needed. We have all procrastinated on SOMEONE getting a license to register them so they would work with any repeaters left operating.I guess it depends on what you define as SHTF. Under my definition, most laws wouldn't be worth the paper they're written on. In that case, I wouldn't worry too much about FFC regs. I'd worry more about not dying.
The chances of functioning repeaters at such a time is about the same for functioning cell phones.I agree with you on a time when laws on this subject won't matter.
