    Are you a HAM?

    Just trying to get a feel for how many FPVers are HAM radio operators. Most FPV operations require a Ham radio license (but not all), so I'm trying to get an idea of what percentage have their license.

    This poll is anonymous, so nobody will be trying to find you for answering that you have no license. Please be honest. Of course, posting your HAM license is a kind of cool way to connect too, so feel free to post that

    Do any of you license holders actually use amateur radio for other than FPV? I hang out on the 10m band from time to time; skip has been really good lately and i've made a few long distance contacts on a mere 100w radio.

    Spouse and daughter are licensed, so yes. Alternate comms for crowed events, and for when hiking or other activity outside of normal cellular coverage. I have my General, they're both Technicians. I haven't been able to afford an HF radio since I got licensed, so still haven't been on HF, but I help provide event support (parades, runs, rides, etc), and I'm wanting to get CERT certified.
