We came home and immediately ordered him a Baofeng UV5A and a better antenna. It will be here Monday and he should be able to transmit on it Tuesday evening if things move along.
I also passed my Extra so now I can enjoy a bit more bandwidth.
I just got done working WA5RES, Larry, just one state away in Oklahoma. We had a nice 30 minute rag chew on 40 meters.
That's the new for today! So much fun!
