Do you take a radio station along with you whenever you or your family might go on a vacation, to the cottage, head out camping, or take an overseas trip...?
[1032 votes since 2014-12-02]
  YES---I absolutely LOVE the notion & the challenges of operating portable like that.
  NO---My XYL & kids would KILL me if I dragged along my radios like that.
  YES---One can only lounge at the beach & see the sights for so long: my radio is a comforting thing to fall back on.
  NO---When I head out someplace new, my radio stays home, by my own choice. Who needs that distractioin in new environments, anyway?
  YES---It gives the perfect opportunity to utilize my so-called "secondary" radio, & to help ensure that it's still functioning.
  NO---Far too many questions from non-Hams whenever I might operate in "unknown territory" that only serves to spoil the fun.
  Who can afford to travel hither & yon these days?! Besides, my Ham radio is MY passport to anywhere that I might want to go.
