We need a forum here. I might be able to hear you with some of the 2 meter propagation going on the past few days. I was hearing san Antonio clearly this morning.
jordanmills; Charlie,

AGREED 100%, though I'm a really unconventional ham operator, inasmuch as about all that I do is emergency, tornado & coastal storm rescue/recovery operations.

About the same here. I don't even own a radio at this moment. The neighbor behind me is also an amateur radio operator so he keeps me up on things.

We’re looking at 44 acres right now outside a place small enough to not have its own post office. A crossroads serves the only local business area, town population is 59.

Seems like a pretty ideal place, a pasture producing coastal hay, grazing lease with a guy that raises longhorns, frontage on the Guadalupe, and wildlife.

It’s a pretty penny, but nobody is going to bother me there.

Jump on it if you can swing the deal. A few things to consider, sending PM

FCC requires that the person transmitting say that call sign over the air periodically. It's the same requirement for CB radio but I know of no CB operators that do that.
Back in the day, You had to get a license to operate /use a CB. I got mine in 1977...KANE5430. My understanding is that a CB license was not needed sometimes in the 80's

I still remember my parent call letters KLJ5773. A couple they became great friends with back then were younger then my parents. I still talk to them on the phone on a regular basis.
