This week was relatively uneventful on amateur radio as well. I listened on 10 meters on several occasions, but I made no contacts.
As far as other goals, I was able to get a new power connection in place in the Malibu. I didn’t run a new from the battery, but instead ran it from the connection in the trunk (that already runs to the battery) back to the passenger compartment. I now have both the Icom 2100 and the Radio Shack HTX-10 powered safely from the battery.
I did not get a chance to test the Yaesu FT-857, but that will be tested this weekend.
For the next week, the two goals are:
1. Test the Yaesu FT-857D
2. Run a coax to the VHF antenna in the Malibu.
Thank you for reading my post.
