Licensing / Do you REALLY need that ham license?
« on: February 18, 2015, 05:56:02 PM »
Freax if money is an issue for you then there's always the option of getting a job. You've said a number of times that you would like to relocate to the U.S.. Have you actually looked into that in any detail ? You may find that there are barriers to doing that due to a lack of financial resources and education.

Every country has its issues and that includes Australia . Tony Abbott desperately wants to bring in a number of policies in the name of welfare reform. These include compulsory income management as well as only getting welfare payments for 6 months out of 12 in every calendar year. For the most part I'm anti those reforms. However there are times when I hear about people who are intractability abusing the system then one starts to rethink their stance.

I do have to add that VHF/UHF can at time get some significantly improved distances (not as good as HF though) through tropospheric ducting. If conditions are right its possible to communicate over distances of many hundreds of kilometres. Obviously chances improve with your elevation and the use of a quality antenna such as a j-pole or a yagi.

Using a HT with a j-pole or a yagi is also beneficial for improving line of sight comms as well.
