Amateur Radio

KJ6PSN - Seth
KJ6PSO - Kristin

Listed above are our amateur radio call signs. For those of you who do not know, we are licensed amateur radio operators (yes, we are HAMs). We were encouraged by Kristin's dad, Richard, to get our technicians licenses and purchase a few handheld radios. So far we have been having a lot of fun with our radios and have used them on a few of our training hikes.

While we are hiking the PCT, we will attempt to share our experiences over the airways of amateur radio.  During these broadcasts we will speak with other members of the amateur radio community about our experiences along the trail. Even those of you without radios can listen to our broadcasts over the Internet.

We will be making a  HAM Plan before we go on the trip and will update our blog with a list of times and dates of our planed broadcasts and what frequencies we will be using.
