Well with Ham Radio you can talk around the world pretty much, depending on the time of day and the bands that you operate on. Also, you have to pass exams in morse code and theory in order to operate on the ham bands. With CB, anyone can go out and buy a radio to use, so you never know who you're going to be talking to on the other end.
That's why I wanted to post this thread, because if someone was in Cali and had a ham license, we could set up a time and band/freqency, and could probably communicate the 3000 miles from coast to coast.
I think what you're trying to do with CB is just to find some local guys out in Virginia, but I don't think anyone, either in VA or the US has responded about anything yet, so I don't know .. ???
where are you abouts? If i can ill see if he can get you. When i lived back in NY my dad had a tower in our backyard. The darn thing got struck by lightning though. Burned out his reciever. It was good for a while, he got all over the world. But now there is this thing called echolink. IT can connect you to all these repeaters all over the world. He also used to have a repeater himself but got fried.
