Hello, I would like your help and advice please. I have my General class license and will soon be studying for my extra class license. I do not own any of my own HF gear yet and use a handheld transceiver as my get on the air station. In my family I have a retired trucker uncle, cousin, and uncle of a cousin who are into the CB. I am not talking about legal CB either. Neither of the three are trained nor have studied radio or communications as we have to do as amateur radio hobbyists. Therefor there is a lot of bad ideas and hype being used by my family and yet they think it is Gospel truth. I know you understand. They will talk about dead key & swing, talkback, finals, they think the ten meter band IS Ham radio, etc. They talk about “leeniers” , have very over modulated distorted audio, etc. I have heard things such as the coax cable when run inside the cab of the tractor trailer has to be a certain length or multiples of a certain length or the SWR will never be right. Overly exaggerated gain claims of a certain antenna, yet not understanding how DB works or what the wattage numbers mean. They do not understand that a CB is on the 11 meter band and think a CB is better because it has a "freq" frequency counter on it. In the CB world louder is better, and it is a cool thing when you can be heard over several channels or over the neighbors TV set. I would like to share my hobby with my uncle who just happens to live on the same property as our family. Yeah we have a Waltons thing going on here with my mom, step dad, my wife, daughter, and myself in the same house. Then my aunt and uncle live in the mother-in-law house on the hobby farm. How do I, or what advice would you give me to calmly share Ham radio and some technical details with my uncle so we can have a meaningful conversation about Amateur radio and CB? I do not want to paint the snob picture than some CB guys have towards Ham radio. I also do not want to do the put down thing that some Ham guys have done with the CB crowd. Thank you very much for the help and advice.
