    We did get the radio and battery charger back for $250.00 cash and no police but it was a mess and hard to believe the meeting was only 500 yds from the site as I went with the Ops Manager to verify the radio was working fine and not damaged.

        Nah... an-almost-was

        I was heavily in to the Citizen's Band HF/UHF gear from '87 ~ '02, building & experimenting with antennas/configurations & DXing... during it's local 'heyday' we conducted fox-hunts on weekends and this is when my contacts with the local Amateur Radio Club assisted me locating the specification/design for an amplified FSM (which gave an edge in fox-hunting), I later turned the construction skills acquired through that hobby towards scanner antenna's & Digital UHF TV antennas

        Somewhere after that the 'local calibre' of enthusiasts went to hell in a hand basket, so I turned my interests towards the internet & PCs in general... I notice that the levels of license have since been altered to help entice those not interested in morse (or the lower HF frequencies) to this recreational past time, to be honest I think Ham radio will eventually seduce me one day... just not for the moment LOL

          KL2BY here, with the advent of IRLP/APRS the computer is playing more of a role in the amateur realm.
