So a co-worker took an interest in the fact I have a handie talkie in my backpack. Even the HT thing he’s interested in.
So I explained, he could get a radio like my Anytone or TYT or what have you. And he could listen. But to transmit he’d need to be licensed. Pointed him to the ARRL’s web site at http://www.arrl.net- showed him how to locate testing sessions, how to download question pools etc.
Just proves the value of bring the radio with you.
