I want to introduce you to my blog some of it taken my other blog from the tactical ham, now before you think this is a all weapons and ham radio related blog I would like to clear a few things up.
oxford's dictionary defines "tactical" as such
1. relating to or constituting actions carefully planned to gain a specific military end.
"as a tactical officer in the field he had no equal"
2. (of a person or their actions) showing adroit planning; aiming at an end beyond the immediate action.
"in a tactical retreat, she moved into a hotel with her daughters"
Now our blog is about the latter definition (of a person or their actions) by taking a tactical approach to ham radio has given me a fun and structured way of enjoying the hobby and saving me money by not wasting it on things that just don't work for me.
A lot of times I do storm spotting and helping first responders in their duties
and this puts me into some very interesting situations
Now with that out of the way you can look forward to some good scenario based stories that hopefully will take and add some food for thought. A few of them are also like where I where I helped a fellow ham who was in our military rig up his old gear just to see if it would work and have fun Elmer'ing him in the hobby.
Now a little about me, I am a extra class ham who was licensed in 2017/2018 (extra class) and as I had mentioned before work in the field assisting first responders and law enforcement. Many days I have to carry around a radio for my job usually a Motorola 6000 and I always somewhere on my person also have my HT . Yes there are days I just don't switch on my ham radio and having a grandbaby (whom has started liking ham radio and had already been to Dayton Hamvention at 5 mo. old) I don't always get a chance to fully enjoy my hobby.
I hope you enjoy my blogs and at least walk away from it with something you can use
Take care ~73
