Default My Radio Update

Well the eqipment arrived last week and I have set up as I feel up to it.

I have my 2m antenna up so far.

Lesson learned when you get back into a hobby order everthing you need. Kinda hard to hook up an antenna with no coax!! duhhhh

I did run across a GREAT deal on a MFJ 1798 on ebay. New in box never opened shipped to my door and the cost was almost 50% of HRO. Sounded to good to be true and I took the chance and it came today and it new and was never opened. So now when my mast arrives tomorrow I hope to be on HF with the G5rv and the MFJ this weekend.

I am ordering everything due to the fact lack of energy for any length of time dont go well with looking for local deals.

BPSI is unreal and I went to night school to get another degree to read the owner manual but so far I do like this radio.

You guys will be lining up at Mikes house ready to "help" (play with) all his new gear!

We're gonna have a rally and hamfest in Mike's backyard so he'll have no reason not to be there!

I, being ill myself, order most everything too. It's so much easier to do things that way.
