    President Nelson vaccinated

    This can be interpreted in a number of different ways. Not once did President Nelson say to where masks or to get vaccinated. Basically, if members would just stay home when their sick, practice basic hygiene, and sneeze into their arm, that would help bring the numbers of any virus down. It is surprising, though, how many people don’t do that.

    The Tolerance of the Church

    Not only that, but she was a fully OUT lesbian who was proudly advertising her lesbian "identity." What do you mean by “she was a fully OUT lesbian?” I cannot imagine the Church would allow anyone to promote SSA in the Temple.

    Why Do Bad Things Happen To Good People?

    This reminds me of the movie “Signs.” For those who have not seen it, it’s about an alien invasion. However, the movie mainly takes place on a farm and is told from the perspective of a family that recently lost a mother who was killed by a driver who fell asleep at the wheel while she was out for a walk. The husband, who was a farmer and minister, was so angry with God that his wife had to die, that he divided God wasn’t real and abandoned his faith. Meanwhile, his son has asthma, and his daughter has a weird phobia about germs that causes her to constantly leave nearly full glasses of water all over the house. At some point in the movie, when it looks like the son is about to die from an asthma attack, it turns out that is the very thing that saves his life. The daughter’s germ phobia, as well as some some other things, also contribute to what saved everyone. Basically, the point the movie makes is that God has a purpose to our afflictions that we don’t understand.

    Passed the Technician Class test for Ham Radio today

    I’m thinking of going with the Icom 718, but what I find somewhat confusing is what I need to purchase along with it or any base station (other than the antenna), and it’s rather difficult to find straightforward answers online. What is typically required for a base station if you want to do HF? Is an antenna tuner necessary? Many videos I see seem to have their radios connected to watt meters and power supplies or batteries. Is that really necessary for base stations or just for mobile rigs? I’ve also read that you can sometimes connect the radio to the outlet of your house, but I’m not sure if that’s typical practice. I currently have my Technician License, but am preparing for my General, which I will probably take in a week or two.

    @classylady After reading your post, my initial response was this:

    So, I’m interested in getting on the HF bands. However, as I decide on either a base station or mobile radio, I realize I’m going to have to get an antenna. What antennas do any of you use to get on the HF bands? Furthermore, how did you set it up?

    Well, I passed the Technician’s exam yesterday. I ordered a Yaseu FT-60r along with a Diamond exchangeable antenna. I plan on getting an Icom for our base station, but I’m taking more time with that as I research what I need, and how I want to set it up.

    I was thinking of getting a Yaesu. What model do you have?

    Mainly, I would like to use it as part of my emergency preparedness plan. Ideally, I would like to be able to communicate with my family that’s about 200 miles away; however, they will need to get their license if we are to communicate with each other, but, if not, at least I would be able to relay information to them. But I also find this fun and interesting, so I can see this turning into a hobby. I’m interested in DX and digital, and definitely repeater use. Unless I’m flying to client sites, I usually just work from home, so I don’t usually have a commute, but I like the idea of using a handheld with a mag mount and car antenna. How far have you been able to reach with a handheld? And what kind of handheld do you prefer?

    I’ve been preparing for the Technician exam and will be taking it this week. I’m still looking into a good radio. I’ve been thinking of starting out with a high-end handheld with a good antenna and then getting a base station. For those who have been doing ham radio for a while, is there a specific brand/model of radio that you prefer? Do you use a handheld or base station, or both?
  12. Collectively, when you associate with like-minded individuals who are striving toward righteousness, you have others who understand why you live the way you do, and will be a source of support and encouragement. That is why it’s essential to marry someone with the same spiritual/religious goals. Attending the temple where every member there is 100% worthy to be there instead of being in a temple where 5% or so are not worthy to be there Why would attending the temple with a group result in more worthy members in attendance, as opposed to attending the temple alone? Everyone still has to go through the same process to receive a Temple Recommend.
  13. If only Antifa and BLM would heed the wisdom of the First Presidency.
  14. The media is lying. They are trying to say it was stormed by Trump supporters, but the evidence is that it was instigated by Antifa, and the violence was caused by them as well.
