What do you want to do at TechShop Pittsburgh?

Lean more about becoming a licensed ham operator. Have a GMRS license WQRB311, but am restricted to gmrs/frs channels. Need tips on getting better antenna for apartment building use. Cannot install an outside antenna. Want to know if some radio operators could try to contact me on[masked] pl 94.8 (low power-500mw) or[masked] open pl (higher power-up to 50watts). I want to learn more about antennas and radios and what things I should do before taking the test. I hope that I am not intruding as most of you are licensed ham operators, but I want to meet more new people to gain more knowledge about things like packet data sending and receiving and sattlelite tracking.

How did you find us?

I searched google for ham radio users group.

If you could make anything, what would you make?

A desk top power mic for the TYT TH-9000 uhf radio. (currently in progress). And a DIY Dish antenna for 70cm. Also have many other ideas.

Introduction

I am a person who was always intrigued by radio communication as a child and even more so now being a senior citizen. I want to be a ham radio operator in a bad way, but have a severe memory problem that effects even my every day living.
