That was fun, thanks again Dave for helping me diagnose my problem at the rally, looks like I'm back in business now with a new cable, also remounted antenna. The new 40cm Diamond antenna on the HT was a huge upgrade as well, definitely worth the $20. I'm tossing that little stub thing in the glove box for trails runs.

My other pickup was a SBB-1 rubber duck 2m/440 antenna, which I've got on the 80 now. Trying the lower profile deal for a change.. but Jeff I bet if I put the longer SBB-5 back on I could have reached you in Broomfield a little better on simplex. I'll try that next time.

I have an SBB-7 on the 40 which makes a huge difference with my TH-F6A HT.

I'll be around this Monday.

Default Great rag chew tonight

Thanks Ricardo, Brian, and Tim. It was a good Cruiser and HAM chat. Let's sort out the IRLP links and get the Rising Sun HAMS global!

Live, from Oktoberfest in Germany next week.

OK, I had a look at the IRLP nodes in Germany (N=4) and they are primarily in the south. I will be in the north, so no ragchew next Monday night via IRLP for me.

If you have not done it, take a look at this link. This will show you how you can add the IRLP nodes and reflectors to Google Earth as well as display their status. I find this very useful.
