Liking it a lot! I never used to be able to hold on to simplex contacts, now I've had a few while cruising. There's a net on a somewhat distant repeater I was never able to check into before due to bad signal on my end, I have been hitting that one just fine too. Crystal clear TX, really good RX. I may swap antennas to something a little longer just to really get out there, my biggest limitation now is the tiny 12" Comet I have.
Well I'll be darn! I did not know this Forum existed until I noticed recent activity. I have ham radios coming out the wazoo! Too many HF rigs the best of which is an FT DX3000, too many hand-helds the best of which are probably the IC92AD (2m/70cm/DStar) and the TH-72a (2m/70cm/APRS), 2 mobile rigs-a TM-D710A (2m/70cm/APRS for the truck), TM-V71A (2m/70cm in the house) and Too many scanners. A Collins 30L-1 Amp used with the FT-DX3000 (I truly admire the old Collins master piece and use it almost every day.)
I use a Larson glass mount dual band antenna on the truck's back window for the TM-D710A.
My wife asks how many radios does 1 person need? The answer is about 12 less than I have. And I have been licensed since 1979.
Correction: How many radios does 1 person need? As Larry Potterfield (Midway USA) would say "Just one more".
You've got me on the G10. I am not familiar with that one. Only G10 I've ever seen is an 1940's receiver.Bearcat 210 was one of the first I owned. I’ve got one of those in my museum as well as the BC220, BC220RC, BC250 and a BC300 which I always wanted but couldn’t afford when it was new.
Love the 950SD. Wouldn’t mind moving up to a 990 at some point.
HW8 was new to me back in the 70’s and the G90 is for trips to the cottage.
I hope others get into this little thread and share what they have in scanners and radios.
Sure, OK. I thought this thread was in that Forum. Guess his thread got hijacked.There is a whole subforum here for this sort of stuff, tons to read about what people have and are running, a great resource:
[P]Anything related to radios whether countermeasure related or not. Mostly about CB radios and radio scanners. But discussions about HAM radio and licensing is welcome here as well.www.rdforum.org
I think that it would be very interesting if we got more threads going in there, since this particular thread is about FoxStang's setup, so there was a great resource of all the different setups people are running.
@robbyb413, OK, I'll do that. Thanks.Right, I mean you're correct the thread is in the forum. I was suggesting that it would be awesome if you added a thread to that forum with pics and info just for your setup so we can go talk about yours all we want there, and then talk about FoxStangs here, you know?
Mine is here... https://www.rdforum.org/threads/98686/
