You guys are great!!! I appreciate what you do with your "podcast" work.

I am wondering, and looking for and not finding an understanding of what "Petra" means regarding 2-way radios. I best I can glean from my cyberspace wanderings is that they receive entertainment radio stations. Hard to say exactly where I got that idea.

Again, thank you for your podcast work.
