    These activities are expressly forbidden on amateur radio frequencies. I recommend learning about ham radio from ham radio sites, not from SHTF sites that obviously don't know what they are talking about.

    ETA: The link itself actually is a ham radio site; a respected ham radio periodical in fact. My comment refers to SHTFplan and their comment; not anything CQ posted in the link.

    Ya one of my Buds from Virginia is into ham radios and his truck looks like a frigging porcupine coming down the road!!! He's got 3-4 different ones and one that extends way to hell up in the air electrically. Quite a set up,so much so,he had to add 3 marine batteries in back as well as the 2 already in the truck just to run everything,,just crazy!!!
