Re: Ham Radio for Trail Use Primer & Radio Buyers Guide
Just bumping this thread. Just passed my technician, KJ7BWM. Put in a Yaesu FTM400-XDR which i'm really pleased about. I've been experimenting with APRS. I've gotten crazy with a 2nd battery and isolated power bus. I'll make a post on it over the holiday.
Congrats on your license. That's a nice radio. I looked at it and the nice features. But in the end I installed a FT-8900.I wanted the cross band repeater function. I have a second battery dedicated to the radio and charging devices.
Looking forward to reading your write-up. KE5WRH
