Hey all..
Lots of options this holiday..
Ham Radio:
Ham radio is a GREAT thing to get into to take your rocket geekery to the next level. If you're looking to get into ham radio, but don't know where to start.. Here are a couple of options.. a low end all analog, and then a couple of higher end analog+DMR (world wide digital) options: (non-affiliate links)
Low End Analog (5W) HT TriBand ~$60
[ https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01J2W4JUI ]( https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01J2W4JUI ) 
High end Analog+DMR+SPRS HT TriBand ~$300 - [ https://www.bridgecomsystems.com/pages/anytone-878uvii-plus ]( https://www.bridgecomsystems.com/pages/anytone-878uvii-plus ) 
(includes APRS (GPS) Transmit AND REceive, for tracking rockets with just the radio! Buy from this place and you get a free training course, and super DMR code plug!)
High end (Chinese) Analog (50W) +DMR+APRS, Mobile TriBand ~$460
[ https://www.bridgecomsystems.com/collections/amateur-mobile-radios/products/anytone-at-d578uviii-plus-tri-band-amateur-dmr-mobile-radio ]( https://www.bridgecomsystems.com/collections/amateur-mobile-radios/products/anytone-at-d578uviii-plus-tri-band-amateur-dmr-mobile-radio ) 
(same as the HT above.. but has 50Watt xmit.. plus APRS(GPS) tracking from your car. I just got this one!)
Talk to NRVR member [ Ben Williams ]( http://mailto:%20jbwillia@math.vt.edu ) about the next ham radio exam dates on VT campus.
