New Equipment

The truck now has a dedicated Yaesu FT2900 2m radio. It has a bit more power to reach the more distant repeaters with 75 watts output on the 5/8 wave antenna. It is a bit nicer than having to connect the handy talkie HT which is actually adequate at 5 watts with the wide footprint of the 146.610 repeater. It just saves the hassle of connecting it all the time. The HT is now a fixture in the Mini Cooper
