OK well I got everything tidy now and the install is complete.
I had a chance to play with the receiver and all of it's settings for the DSP and they seem to work very well.
I also made my first contact in the RV with a ham in BC just North of the border with WA near where I also used to live. He stated the audio and such sounded fine.
He informed me that they are thinking about an $.80 per gallon tax to encourage mass transit in BC.
I think I am going to have to stay out of BC if they do that.
Anyway, the FT-897D and the tuner are working just fine and I think I will keep them.
Now to get the wife's truck sold and the house sold an I am pretty much ready to hit the road.
See you all down the log!
