Update on all things radio…
Well, after several months of faffing about, I’ve taken the plunge. I’ve traded most of my “old” gear in, and am now the proud owner of a Yaesu FT-897D. And I’m very happy with it too.
Still got the aerials to sort out, but the thought of having 100W on all HF bands (including six metres) and a decent bit of grunt on 2M is good enough for me.
Planning to start the RSGB VHF contests on a Tuesday night before too long.
Will keep you all updated once I’ve got the aerials sorted. I do have aerials now, it’s just they’re not that good 🙂
