Been dumped? The best revenge may not be a 2.5 ton fireball @ 10:59 pm

Today was interesting... potsie and I spent about 3 hours this afternoon putting this massive mural together for our company banquet. Tony bought all the lumber and Jason and I helped him put it together. This mural is 9.5 feet high and 12 feet wide. It comes in 8 pieces, so we have to building a portable frame that we can affix it to. Since the banquet is at the country club we can't just attach it to the wall. So we built this massive frame to staple it to, and then we can just lean it against the wall. It took a long freaking time, and a lot of energy to put it all together. Overall I'd say it turned out pretty well, as we were feeling pretty manly when it was all done.

After work, gorgonous, potsie and I went to Frys to look at walkie talkies. After way too much time trying to decide we ended up with the TalkAbout T5420. I guess if you get into even semi-nice walkie talkies you start needing an FCC license to operate them. We were looking around the walkie talkie aisle for like 45 minutes because we didn't know what to get. We ended up calling my buddy Travis. He told me that you don't really need a license because it wasn't enforced. So we ended up getting the ones that ones that don't need a license. Oh yes, good times!

I love two-way radios. And, FRS are for pussies. Looks like you made an appropriate choice.

It's like your friend said. The sheeit don't be enforced. Just don't invade other peoples' rightful frequencies and you be set.

You know what... For what I got it works REALLY well and I don't have to worry about that at all. I'm quite happy. Plus FRS stuff is a lot cheaper.

Heh, I think I've managed to get under your skin. :)

You're right though, FRS works great. But you have to admit that there's something that just makes you feel like a pussy when some little kid comes across on your frequency/subcode and says, "Mommy, where are you?"

But yeah, about cost and everything really, FRS is the right choice, I was just giving you shit. I got my MV11Cs off eBay and with speaker mics they still cost me a fortune.

Hahaha I haven't had the joy of the "mommy where are you" communique yet :) I'll let you know when I do. Is the range on the GMRS (is that right?) stuff a lot better? What are the big differences?
