This site will be about my ham radio doings. I have my US Technician license. And in June, 2013, I passed the test and received my General class license. In October, 2014, I purchased my vanity license call.
Studying so I can take the Amateur Extra test in 2017.
This is a 2 meter/70 centimeter dual band radio. Came with a charger, ear buds, a charged battery, and a wrist strap.
It was on sale. I could afford it, the programming cable, and a spare 3800 mAH battery for less than I could get 2 batteries for my other 2 m radios.
Just waiting for my programming cable to go with it. I found a youtube video by Bob Nagy that got me started.
Relatives and I are working on getting line power, mains, out to my shack/shed. Just a few more feet, along with the circuit panel, breakers, and wall sockets.
My radio’s power supply will be its own breaker. Then lights will be on their own breaker.
update: Now have line/mains power to 4 wall sockets. Each pair are on one breaker.
Now I just have to get the rest of the wiring, insulation, and mount my air conditioner so it will be cool in there during summer.
I haven’t been on the air since Field Day, 2016 due to wasps in my shed. I have closed up some small holes, and I hope to get the larger opnes along the roof peak closed up before the spring.
