Planning a trip to Disney World? If yes, hear is a little secret. You can ham it up in Disney World by simply packing your HT. There are two repeaters right on the Walt Disney World property (2m FM and 440Mhz D-Star).
In our family, we have several licensed hams and found our 2m FM HT's indeed handy for staying in communication with each other while having fun in Disney World. Disney Emergency Amateur Radio Service 2m FM

Growing up in Michigan, we regularly listened to Michigan football games broadcast on AM radio and announced by the great Bob Ufer. Bob announced Michigan football games for 36 years. His announcing style was unlike anything we have ever heard before or since. Bob's enthusiasm and excitement for "Meechigan" football was positively infectious.
Bob Ufer was born this day on April 1, 1920 in Pittsburgh, PA.
