    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.

    Best thing about our little town is, it ain't on anyone's radar. There ain't one good reason to move here.

    Our biggest challenge is finding someone to put in a T1 line; we both have to have dedicated high speed internet to work remotely.

    Here’s the view out towards the pastures.

    Quit looking for excuses.
    High speed internet is a "right".
    And we need a fishing hole!

    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.
