146.460? I'm indoors in Parker with my twin-lead j-pole. Of course I couldn't find my owners manual for my VX-7R. I'm out of practice.

I'll be on tonight - if I can't catch you simplex with my HT I might move out to the truck and crank up the 7800. Starting on 145.145?

You know, it dawned on me this morning that I had the perfect opportunity to cross-bad repeat last night, forgot all about it. We were on simplex and I could easily communicate with both Convert & Subzali, but you guys couldn't hear each other. I totally could have linked that up... next time!

ooh...we'll have to try that. Did you get back on later? I couldn't hear anything on 146.460 after you left to get your HT.

So do you guys sit out in the truck to do the ragchewing?

I moved my truck radio inside for the winter and put up a small j-pole antenna outside. I can easily flip it back in the truck if I go wheelin.

Tim,
The 8800 only crossbands from UHF to VHF or VHF to UHF, don't think it will work the way your thinking.

I was thinking Dan could have switched to 440.something and we could have still communicated. We'll try again.

Back when I was cityfolk, I used to sit in the truck in the garage, yes. But now that boots & a jacket are required to go see the truck, lately I've been staying inside by the fire with the HT. However last night I did go out to the 80 since I wanted to see if I could hear Mendocino, I put the larger SBB5 antenna on the 80 and that's a much more powerful rig than the HT. But alas, no..

and I did get back on simplex from the house, but only Dan could hear me. Guess we can't go HT to HT across 30 miles, eh?
