Hams are licensed amateur radio operators. Several of us clarinetists
(including yours truly) are also hams. An HT is a handheld radio
receiver/transmitter. In this case, Jim has said that he will be monitoring
the frequency of 146.250 megahertz. The number 73 is a closing to a radio
message meaning something like "Best Wishes" (I forget the exact
definition). Numbers like this to replace common phrases came about in the
early days of radio to shorten Morse code messages.

Dee Hays, N8UZE (for those who are not hams, this is my amateur radio call
sign).
