Amateur Radio License and few other Updates

Haven't updated this at all, so here goes.

So a few months back, before heading off to college, I tested for and received my amateur radio license. Sent out an order a couple days ago for a Baofeng UV3R hand-held radio. It seems to be a pretty decent knockoff of the Yaesu VX-3R with the same body style, layout, and features. But the Baofeng is only around $30 compared to $120 for the Yaesu, thanks China!

Started work on another project, will get a page and some pictures up for it here soon.

Over Christmas I picked a camcorder, a Vivtar 945HD. $80, 720p, records to sd cards. Not bad for K-Mart.

I'll try and keep this updated more often.

'Till next time.
