Amateur Radio This Week: #39   Leave a comment

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.
