    I can't imagine anyone would be upset by that. If they are, they likely will just not respond.

    Thanks for the help KC9UDX! I appreciate your encouragement!

    I am going to download the app on my phone and just stick with that one source for my next trial run (AKA, here at the shack and on the mntn in Stowe). I have been a bit confused by some of the inconsistencies found on web searches regarding repeater info.

    Again, ty

    I don't see why not.

    Radio amateurs schedule making contact on a frequency.

    So, why not?

    I have thought to email to check out a "target" I would like to see if an antenna will reach.

    I would also like to use email to find a radio amateur that can record the audio.

    I haven't done it.

    I would like to.

    I think it is a great idea.

    I looked at ignored content, just in case someone else was helping in the thread.

    I really have helped all I know to help about getting that first contact on the repeaters near him.

    I wasn't thinking of ignoring him.

    No callsign, on-the-air, would get the result I mentioned.

    By the way, I use a screenreader.

    I missed his callsign in the first post, because the screenreader doesn't do well unless it is a word, or, I stop it and ask for it to read letter by letter.

    I read plenty for two Bachelor of Science programs and I have plenty of accomplishments.

    Maybe now that everyone knows I am handicapped for reading, now, due to neurological impairments recently, maybe I won't get so much flack for not wanting to read all the extraneous or off-topic "remarks" of the really superior Extras and such on the forum, that have nothing to say about a thread topic.

    apologies: to KC1ERL

    is there a way to change my screen name? I tried to go to my profile, but it says that I don't have access. But my call sign is listed.....

    Since you're a new ham in town, why don't you look up those two hams addresses and stop by to say Hello. I'd bet either guy would be happy to meet and talk to you. Hey, they're neighbors and have something in common with you ... Amateur Radio.:D

    Tone is all you need.

    I never use Tone Squelch because I like to hear if the frequency is in use.

    Good Luck.
