I have some original parts from a Bantam T3-C trailer built in 1945. These were on trailer number 262. I modified the trailer and these are the leftover parts that I didn't use.
Wheels - Yes, they're the two piece combat type.
I can send pictures...
146.805 +offset with 100hz PL tone. It is the KC4AQS repeater by call sign. Depending on your location and elevation, you have a good shot at hitting this repeater from many locations as far south as LaGrange from what I understand. Let us know if you get in from Stone Mountain.
I went to the Hamfest at Stone Mountain and picked up a Yaesu FT817 for cheep! I really lucked out cause the guy was packing up to leave. Just about missed it. I've got it set up and running on 2m and I'm gathering the parts for a fan dipole now. I got the RT programming software and I've been...
BTW: I put a Diamond X50 in the attic. I can hit the 955 machine in Dallas and a scratchy connection to the Repeater in Buckhead which is weird, since many repeaters are closer. I still can't hit the 805 in Jasper from the HT. Maybe once I'm running a higher wattage mobile or base.
Makings of a "Go Kit"...
The lid's panel is removable. I have ideas and designs and thoughts, but no definite plan yet. I'd like to get something like a Yeasu 817 or similar for this setup. There is plenty of room for accessories. I'm still gathering intel and formulating plans.
I was driving through CC the other day calling out on 2M Simplex and the Jasper 805 but couldn't catch you listening. Maybe next time.
Do you have the Cumming, GA. 147.150 machine's pl tone by chance? The two listings I have gave 100 and 131.6 and neither are working for me.
I've been challenged to get the Extra, so I'm studying again. I should take it on November 5.
Saturday, I helped a few guys put up a small antenna tower at a local ham's house. Worked well, but might need some additional tweeking later on. I really learned a lot on that outing. Looking forward...
I missed it. I don't know what I'm doing yet and I was painting several rooms at the house.
I will get out more and try some qrp on the hills, but I got a lot going on. Great rig and trailer. Looks like fun.
I forgot to post in this thread. Took the Tech and General on 8-22.
I have the Kenwood 281A and a Yaesu FT60R HT.
I'm trying to get an Antenna and radio for the "shack" (upstairs corner of the room).
