  1. I've got Mapsource Topo (all 3 cds are great) v3.02 and Roads & Rec v3.00 (Oct 99) that I no longer need.


    Things I'd like to trade for:


    Nice pocket knife (Spyderco, CRKT, etc)

    SureFire flashlight

    Old laptop


    Obviously, I'm not looking for a $300 item, though I wouldn't turn one down :unsure: .


    Just something interesting. Or make me a cash offer.

  2. I listen regularly with my VX5 and an aftermarket antenna, but it's still a rubber ducky.


    But I wouldn't have grand aspirations of getting into it with the antenna - I'm sure it could happen, but the signal would suck (technical term)

  3. Arrow Antennas


    That is the antenna on my wish list.

    yep... I've seen one on ebay over the past 6 months or so... BIN price of $75 (including the duplexer) and it finally sold for like $130.


    I hate being broke.

    Its 132.00 at ARROWS websire..... with duplexer.

    yeah, but the bag isn't included in that price.



  4. not just yet, but im considering it...


    i want either a new palm, a nice color one with bluetooth, im thinking a slightly older tungsten t2. im currently using a visor edge...




    a new HT, i love my kenwood TH-79A dual band HT, its served me well for 5-6 years now, but i bought a tm-d700a, so im thinking it would be cool to get a th-d7ag to do aprs on the go and maybe play on some mobile packet...however theres also the pocket tracker from byonics...


    decisions, decisions, can i really justify any of them?!

    to make things a bit easier (or maybe not) the TinyTrak3 can be had used at hamfests for around $20-30

  5. simplex: think walkietalkie. one person talks, while the other listens.


    duplex: yes, two frequencies, but still, only one person talks at a time



    unless you're talking full-duplex, then it's like a phone - you both talk when you want, but you probably won't have to deal with that much.

  6. it's illegal to use ham bands for a commercial venture (APRS or voice or whatever) and I'm pretty sure that using a marine frequency while not floating is illegal.


    Look into using APRS over a business freq - its certainly possible and won't get you smacked by the FCC

  7. W2ARZ


    It's the sign my grandfather had for probably 30+ years. He passed several years ago and I got the idea to grab it when I found that his original sign was still available.


    Thought about getting his last sign, K4JFN, but he'll always be the Jolly Forty-Niner from Eastern Carolina, as he identified himself.
