This is a very temporary set up of our two radios, a 2m Kenwood and the HF rig.
Until I make myself a better antenna, the 2m rig is running at 5W feeding one of my extra HT antennas (a Diamond SRH 77CA). Perhaps not ideal, but it works well enough to pick up the CARS repeater on the Yorktown (146.790 MHz). The radio has a few issues with the display operating intermittently or just displaying random LCD segments. It receives, I just may not know what frequency I’m receiving on. Hopefully it’s nothing more than just a loose connector to the control panel.
Soon the radios will move into their permanent corner of the office/shack. Then we’ll be cooking with fire!
