Some upcoming webinars from ARRL. For example, on Feb 2 at 10:00am PT:

Here’s how to quickly build from hardware-store copper tape and PVC pipe a tiny 18 in. continuously loaded light weight portable or base station 2m omni-directional vertical antenna with performance and efficiency comparable to a 5 ft. J-pole. Cost: roughly $10. It’s an easy afternoon’s home brew project, ideal for the new ham but equal to the serious hams’ needs. It is great for events like bike-a-thons. It also makes an excellent ham radio club hands-on build-it meeting project. Further, it adapts well to other bands.Here’s how to quickly build from hardware-store copper tape and PVC pipe a tiny 18 in. continuously loaded light weight portable or base station 2m omni-directional vertical antenna with performance and efficiency comparable to a 5 ft.

I'm just curious, 45yrs ago I had an Advanced Extra License. I know things have seriously changed. Just out of curiosity are there any radios that use encryption (2, 4, 6, 8 10, 20, 40, 80M)? Thanks for your time
