Default So, here's my rig...

I got all the pieces and put it together tonight...

Yaesu FT2900R
MegaWatt S-400-12 PSU
N9TAX Slim Jim Dual Band Antenna
Painter's Pole
Orange Traffic Cone
(I will put some holes in the cone so I can stake it's pretty heavy duty. I also have some stainless steel eyelets I can put on the painter's pole if I want to put some guy lines on it.)

Had my first QSO with KD0MSP (thanks Anthony!) and I'm listening to the 1930L net on 145.130...27 check ins! Pretty cool stuff!

I also ordered one of those cheap, Chinese Baofeng HTs...I figured I'd give it a try for $45 shipped. It has some decent reviews on eHam and some other sites.

So, where do you guys hang out on 2m?

Dave / KD0PGD
