If you aren't familiar with Laconia, It's between 2 lakes, with about a mile of decent sized river running between them.
I've been here 15 years and never went swimming till during the "Lockdown", I don't fish, or boat.
 WTF am I doing here ?   ;D
Been watching some of those Kayakers though, I might look into getting one of those.

Every time you guys start talking radio, I get the itch.  The closest I've ever been to it is CB in the trucks.

While reading about ham and CB radios I was transported back to the mid to late 70s, Punxsutawney, PA, sitting in my Dad’s Ford pickup in front of the house, talking on the CB radio.

Then I started thinking about Edmund Scientific and Heathkit catalogs. I always wanted to buy a stereo kit and build it, but never did. It would seem both companies are still around, or at least companies that own their trademarks are still around.

Well by all means go get a CB ! ! ! !  I still use one occasionally.  www.copperelectronics.com generally has a fair or the lowest price.

Like a lot of others here I am a HAM operator (K4JWK). For some reason, there is some sort of mental link for a LOT of gun owners I know and HAM radio. I don't know why but they seem to be connected. Maybe connected by those that want to be prepared? Dare I say "prepper"!

They never stocked the lakes and streams this year.
The fisherman I've talked to said there were fewer but they are better eating.
