Ya think???
How I would get on 440....get a Motorola mobile or handheld..program it or
bitbang it into the ham band.Put it on the analyzer for final alignment for
frequency and power out as well as RX sens.....
Put 100 Watt Spectra/Syntor X-9000 and Maxtracs in car (no Riceboxes
allowed in car)
OK....for HF I do own a 14 year old Icom 706MKII-G and a Kenwood TS-590,
wish I had my Swan 500 back.....

How the Appliance op gets on 440....Hop in family hooptie, drive to AES or
HRO.Buy a $50 baofeng/TYT/Wouxun. Ask dweeb behind counter to program it
for you. Buy a MFJ magmount with connector already attached. Get on
WINSYSTEM and ask for radio checks HOURLY. Announce your "First Personal"
and that your on the side.Tell everyone how amazed you are that a little
radio is making it all the way to Ohio and that they have your meter pegged
and sound "wall to wall & treetop tall". For Christmas ask wife to buy you
a Mirage LINEAR (with proper cables for the Chinese HT) you can REALLY be
the big dawg in town.
For birthday ask kids to buy you a Yaesu crackerbox mobile, have local
stereo shop install trunklip antenna mount.Plug radio into cigarette
lighter outlet...
For Anniversary have wife buy you a Alinco HF rig and antenna tuner.
Connect the Alinco to your left over 11 meter Super Skyraker 47Db gain
Omnibeam and use the tuner to get it to work on 10/15/20/40 meters. (dont
even THINK of making flat top wire dipoles).Don't even THINK of buying a
old Swan/Drake/Kenwood/Trio rig..might have to actually FIX something...
You can thank (my opinion) dingbats like "Gordon" for the store-bought
"hams" on the air. i am VERY happy he doesnt sell pilots licenses....
