Any HAM radio aficionados out there?


Recommended Posts

So... to not go too crazy I am trying new hobbies and bought some Baofeng UV9r radios, it's all greek to me but it is a fun project to learn about bands, frequencies, etc.

Would be fun to hook into a repeater and be able to chat from Chapala to Guadalajara, also to listen to police and emergency frequencies to see whats happening

Hello,

 

I am a U S ham radio operator, but have found very little interest down here.  I understand that the Mexican Authorities do not allow non Mexican Citizens to have a license to operate here.  When I first came to Chapala, I was issued a reciprocal license which lasted for as long as my Visa, but that regulation was changed.  Reciprocals are no longer issued.  It would be nice to get hooked up with some Mexican hams and get some new laws set up, so that we can operate legally again.  I understand that if you know a Mexican Ham, that he or she can allow you to operate their station under their license.  If anyone has any new information, please post.  I would love to talk to any interested people about ham radio.
