It’s Friday! Let’s Fly! (#376)

Oggies seem to enjoy occasional flying videos, so I serve one up here. It’s really simple, just a couple spins around the pattern, appropriately narrated. (But I really need to get a GoPro for this!) Location: Blake Field, Delta, Colorado (AJZ).

Kenwood TS2000 MOBILE – 1 year review

Kenwood TS2000 MOBILE - 1 year review

I think I’ve had this installed about 18-months actually. Until this point, I had never had HF mobile. I find it fun – although most of the time, I am restricted to 40m. But that was cheap. The expensive part is probably the radio, but if you can live with only CB and/or 10m, then there’s a ton of 11m type gear available on the market. The really big problem is the remote head. I would be lost without mine. G’luck, Callum, M0MCX.
