I am new to Ham radio and just got my Technicians class license. I am only planning on carry an HT, Baofeng BF-F8HP. I am having a hell of a time finding a club that would "take me in" unfortunately and I need some help. I am hoping I can find some here. I do have some linked repeaters programmed in through Chirp along with a couple of local repeaters.



I am wondering what frequencies other folks have programmed in for when they are out on the trails. I have read that there are some "monitored" simplex frequencies. I am looking to clean up my radios programming so when I am out,usually alone(I know, I know), I can at least have some way to try and get a hold of someone in an emergency type situation.

Wish I could help you out. I too have a Baofeng but still need a license. I too have played around with chirp and getting some repeaters programmed in but that is as far as I've gotten. The fact that you can't find a club is a bit interesting. I was under the impression this was the easy part but I guess not.

I probably should clarify about the clubs. I have tried contacting them via their preferred method through the website. I have gotten no responses unfortunately. Maybe I just have to go to a few different meetings and see how that goes. :)
