  1. Update, You can have the best of both worlds, CB and Ham (I believe) with this I upgraded just recently: SR-955HPC – SSB Radio – Never Drift All Over On SSB · Frequency Range: 28.000-29.700 MHz & 24.890 – 24.990 IF Frequency AM/FM:10.695 MHz 1st IF, 455 kHz 2nd IF SSB: 10.695MHz · (PC Programmable) · Frequency Bands 1/2/3/4/5/6/7/8/9/10 & VFO (11 meter “CB” Conversion band 4) · Channel 40 channels (programmable) in each band High power 90 watts PEP (with tweak and tune) It has a scanner as well With a good antenna this radio which reach Now I may get my Ham License along with Part 107 Drone certs (photography) This brain may to used up for studying at this stage
  2. Swamp, is in (post July 19,2021delivery date) for any and everything.
  3. A 10 Meter export radio converted to a 11 meter tweaked and tuned with SSB reach is quite far, and yes it is entertaining and occupies the mind while on the road. Pat
  4. SWR is very important with establishing range for CB or any Radio for that matter. The MURS IMO have a less effective range then the CB and if you couple a 10 Meter export radio converted to a 11 meter tweaked and tuned with SSB reach is quite far. Pat
  5. Just curious did a search in this forum to no avail. Anyone use a TPMS on their Olie? Thinking on the TST system, Thoughts? Pat
  6. I will check this out too, Thanks for the recommendation! Pat
  7. IMO this is over kill. End of season yes or use Sta-Bil. With all due respect there isn't any need for draining the fuel after each use. Pat
  8. Hello All, CB's, a blast from the '70-'80s past, brought communication and entertainment to many folks back in the CW Mcall days. I was just wondering if anyone of you uses them today. I travel by myself, well, not quite dog in tow, and I just installed a CB in my Ram 1500. Mainly for entertainment purposes. Although informational broadcasts about accidents and road hazards have saved me much wasted travel time sitting in stopped or slow traffic. Not to mention the ever-appreciated "BEAR" call. Yes, I know the expletives can fly freely on the "Driver" channel (19), which isn't very family-friendly. But you have 38 more channels to choose from. What intrigues me is the possible usefulness in a caravan or group travel setting. Their range (over other devices), along with zero cell communication opportunity or (via SSB) in emergency need, is the driving factor in my resurgence in interest. I also get "that is what cell phones are for" Share your thoughts Pat Joliet, IL
  9. Thanks 2020 Ram 1500 3:92 P75 trans. Not a bad town to live in
  10. Introduction: I will start by saying hello I'm Pat from Joliet, IL. Thank You for this forum and the opportunity to meet all of you someday. I do not fully own an Oliver, but I will soon pick up an LE II on July 19th. A little about myself, I am a divorced Dad that raised three beautiful young ladies. I spent most of my life working on things that fly and just retiring from a 37-year aviation career. During that time, I have had an opportunity to work on some iconic machines. P51 Mustangs, TBM's, A4's, AD1 Skyraders, F86's, and all of today's modern aircraft from DC9's to 747's. I have also worked on Outlaw sprint cars, Drag cars, both super gas and alcohol burners, and off-road race cars. The list goes on. I am also a lifelong camper with canoe trips to BWCA, backpacking Alaska 10 times, to just tromping the Midwest woods. As I got older and had a family, I moved up to a pop up then to a teardrop(empty nester), and now the cats meow an Oliver. In retirement, I hope to meander around the US, Mexico, and Canada with my dog Phoebe and my camera creating art in my home on wheels. I hope to meet all of you in a camp somewhere, sip some wine or a good whiskey, heck any adult beverage, and trade stories. See you soon "Swamp" IE Pat Marsh Joliet, IL
  11. Hi, Swamp. Welcome to the forum.

    You may want to post in "introduce yourself", as a lot if people miss the update posts.

    I'm sure others would like to welcome you, too.

    Btw, which model did you choose?

    1. Swamp


      SeaDawg, Hey

      I was going to when I took possession of my trailer or at least date gets closer? Didn't want to put the cart before the horse.


      Legacy Elite II, Twin, July 19 delivery can not wait miss being on the road.


      Thanks for the welcome



    2. SeaDawg


      We're excited to get the trailer on the road, too, after this long Covid year!

      Some people wait til just before they get the Ollie, others introduce themselves while still looking. Your call. 

      We'll all look forward to photos when you get your Oliver and get out camping!
