Welcome to KJ7JAS.com. This site is dedicated to helping hams further their experience in this important hobby of communications. I would venture to say that there is a ham radio on the market to fit the need of anyone wanting to get into this hobby and for a reasonable price. Below I have listed the ham radios I currently use and basically what they do. Please contact the vender web sites for full details on each. I also have a section for new hams to help them make informed decisions when purchasing ham radios and accessories. Keep in mind that these are my opinions and observations over the four years I have been a ham. I will also have a section dedicated to digital ham radio. Feel free to check that out as well.
For those of you who want to dive in and talk to someone in the Boise area, you will find a great group of hams on 146.520. There are also a lot of repeaters in the area which can be found at repeaterbook.com. If you had a radio that can connect to C4FM/Fusion you can have a great time on the N7MKY repeater at 443.875 +, or you can find him in the wires-x room at 83624 or the reflector at 83624 as well. The N7MKY wires-x room is affectionally know as the 'Monkey Room', all are welcome.
