Congrats Curtiss !
I used double sided tape to mount it up on top of my dash. So far, it's been there for a year in Arizona heat and off road beating without any problems, and it makes adjustment easy while you drive.I'm KI6MDP
I have a Yaesu 2800, anyone with a good solution for a permanent mount?
Anyone ever receive an "Official Observer Advisory Notice"?
Install looks great.I did! I got a notice that I was operating on the band edge on a HF frequency. I do not own a HF rig, nor have I ever keyed a mike on HF so someone misunderstood the call or used mine.
Here's how I mounted my FT-8800:
I've been involved with amateur radio for 15 years or so, and I greatly appreciate the efforts of other ham operators to keep the airwaves functioning properly, since the FCC has no budget or manpower to do so. If you want unregulated 2-way communications, you have CB. But if you want a radio service that will actually be there with folks ready to help in times of emergency, you'll learn to appreciate the self-monitoring policies of amateur radio. Of course, there are always a few that take things to extremes - but most just gently remind folks when they stray from the regulated path, so that things works properly when the s#@t hits the fan :cheers:.I have never been involved in a hobby where so many participants want to be hall monitors, and so bad at it.
Welcome to the club.........My call sign is KK6GHW. I wish we could get more members to get their license, it would make comm sessions a lot easier in the hills.Started studying for my HAM only last night and passed it at FJ Summit today. Used hamexam.org. If you're in a pinch and want to learn how to speed study for this thing let me know.
