Here's whats funny, I checked what tone my radio was set to on the 145.310 repeater and it was actually set at 100Hz..... So I thought I was done for. I changed it to 123Hz just for kicks and I was actually able to hit the repeater and talk to K0NAK so I consider it a total success.

I guess a while back I figured out about the 100Hz thing and changed it when I was trying to hit the repeater with the bigger diamond antenna (HT Mounted)and just forgot about it.

Anyways, this was all still with my home made J-Pole stuck in the fence in the back yard. Mission accomplished I think.... Tim did let me borrow his new Arrow J-Pole so I am going to do a little comparison of the two later.
