  1. Steve,

    My son was the 13 year old that passed his test Friday. We want to hit the
    YRC repeater and aren’t sure if we can hit it from our home. I’ve got a
    50W Baofeng UV-5001 with 39″ antenna for the radio on 2m band. I can hear
    the 442.875 announcements, but not sure if we need to program a code for
    the underlying tone to get through to bounce off. So, in short, two issues:

    – From 604 N. DuPage Ave in Addison, do you think our rig is enough to
    hit the repeater in Oakbrook Terrace?
    – Do we need a code? Since Bill and Nick mentioned you had Baofeng
    radios, I figured I’d reach out to you for help!
