I've just gone through the process of getting my first amateur license. I got the Technician level license and so am limited to VHF/UHF until I can learn Morse code. I have already started to study for the general exam. Are there any hams here? Or do I need to look somewhere else? Any thoughts on amateur radio in a SHTF situation? I'm thinking it might come in handy. I have a CB, but truckers seem to be about the only users since cell phones became so common.
