The FM birds are all that I have access to at the moment. I personally

since being 14 years old doesn't really pay that much. I cannot afford 
some of these fancy all mode rigs that can even make you a cup of 
coffee. All I've got in my inventory is several FM UHF and VHF rigs that 
get me on the FM birds.

Amateur Radio is a wide spectrum. There's lots of different things that 
can take place in different ways. Some rely on the ionosphere to get 
their contact, and other's rely on the pass predictions. It's not easy 
to float everybody's boat, but most of the time we seem to get along OK.
