Daily Radio Report: 7/5/15   Leave a comment

I moved the Yaesu FT-857D inside to play with some of my antennas. I know that this radio is solid, so I am comparing it with my other HF radios. However, with the ongoing solar storm, I was able to make no contacts.

I also played with my Alinco DR-605. It is having all sorts of power issues. When I key the transmitter on VHF or UHF, the power cycles. I tried moving it to different power outlets in my RigRunner. I am also able to transmit 100W on the 857, so I don’t think it is my power supply.

Thank you for reading my post.
