I am to dumb to be a Lid

That should be "I am too dumb to be a Lid"

Told ya I was too dumb. I am surprised I passed any of the tests… let alone all three back to back.

What did that video have to do with HAM or repeaters?  Unless you were talking about repeat-offenders?

Let's not forget that with a repeater, its generally one freq in and another freq out, generally at a higher power level then what's coming in.  so your 5 watt HT (if that's what you are using) signal becomes a 60 watt signal (depending on repeater transmit power into the antenna) and antenna height.  As I recall when asking for a signal report for CB'er, it was how well am I getting out and how far is the signal going, where on 2 meter, I am looking for how well am I making the repeater and holding it, is the repeater dropping out during my transmission because of low batteries or am I in a dead spot, and is there a problem with the audio.

As other have indicate, just put your call sign out there and listen.  If someone comes back to you, ask how well your signal is getting and the quality of the audio.  Generally I have found most operaters to be more than happy to give you feed back.
