It's OK that we have Pakistanis sew up replacement canvas soft tops for next to nothing but damned if they get to buy our used 2F parts?

I was thinking about this just yesterday. It usually happens around this time of the year, a few weeks before Cruise Moab. I'd be happy to do it but last year it was more work than it was worth. I...

An interval of 10 min is pretty large. The FTM-350 defaults to 5 min for this setting. I seem to get about 25% of my packets through to the Internet, so if you're only sending them out every 10...

Is the gasket flat or is it an o-ring? Silicone can work to replace an o-ring and doesn't have to be permanent. Put down a bead and let it cure a day or two and it's a gasket that doesn't come off...

So what exactly are we talking about here? You mention a VX8R and a Tinytrak3. You don't need a TNC with a VX8R. So do neither of your APRS trackers work? That seems very odd if so. Please list...
