I’m with ya!!!
Most of these naysayers haven’t got a clue. I believe we need to be informed. I’ll want to know who’s left after all is said and done/or it might be fun to get into a hobby like this.
I am not enough of a ham to know what band is best to use (remember my gear is essential led packed up).
How do we pick a good frequency. I think a first, second, third choice list for frequency/band.
Any ham operator that is better versed and has used the airwaves for years could really help at this point.
might be nice as a 1st step to get an excel sheet set up with operator/freq/alt freq/zone/time of broadcast.
The michigan militia page has a good sw equipment and antenna page under the “communications” tab.
