I am getting back into the hobby. I fell out of it about a year or so ago.. my Icom IC-T90A was having antenna issues, I broke the knob off of my Yaesu FT-8900R and took it out of my car when I bought a new car, I took on a night shift job, then left that job and went to a police academy, now work a night shift job in law enforcement. Just had no time or means of being on the air. Well I have made steps towards getting back on the air. 1. I dug out the Icom IC-T90A, charged it, and figured out the antenna. 2. I bought a Kenwood TH-K2 from a friend, and charged it up. 3. I put a mag mount 2m/440 antenna up on the roof and rigged it up to be attatched to my HTs for temporary use in the house for nets, started checking into nets again last night. 4. I decided to really look into fixing the Yaesu Ft-8900R, and going to make it my base station. (Don't want the ugly Comet UHV-4 antenna on my car anymore... so that got me thinking.. what about mobile? 5. I just ordered me a Yaesu Ft-1802R, small Comet mag mount antenna, and programming software from Gigaparts Sure, its only 2m, but I found that with my FT-8900R, I RARELY ever used 10m or 6m, and 440 only gets used about once a week for a simplex net around here... so 2m only will do just fine. 6. Gonna go ahead and start studying up for my General Class... AGAIN. Like a dummy, I took the General theory a year or so back, passed it, never took the code, lost the theory.. Then I will have to look into a good HF rig.. Just thought I'd share since something sparked my interest in ham again..
