If anyone is looking for a great 2M mobile (truck-mounted) ham radio, Ham Radio Outlet has a $40 rebate and free shipping on the Yaesu FT-2900R through the end of March, bringing the price down to $139.95 A good price for a great radio: http://www.hamradio.com/detail.cfm?pid=H0-010078
There are some great prices on radios and etc. here, I have never seen prices these low on a lot of these radios. Worth checking out if you are in the market for one:
No affiliation whatsoever with HRO except as a satisfied customer.
Been looking for a 60 for a while now, and finally found one worth buying. 1987, H55F transmission, 2.5" OME lift, new 33's, meticulously maintained (owner is a well-known professional Cruiser mechanic), negligible rust, doesn't leak or burn oil.
Any Expo members going to Ham-Com this weekend? Supposed to be the biggest hamfest in Tejas. It's a bit of a drive for me, but I think I'll go for the first time this year. Have some money burning a hole in my pocket for an HF radio and antenna.
OK, I got tired of having the GPS I use for APRS (an AvMap G5) being wobbly and falling off of the suction-cup mount, so I made a bracket to mount it above the rear-view mirror of my Land Cruiser, using the same attachment bolts as the mirror. Used a scrap piece of mild steel to make this...
Didn't see a place to post introductions, so I guess I'll do it here. I'm an old fart with a 1980 FJ40
and a 2007 FJC
that I like to wheel and take on week-long + trips.
