Using my new Yaesu FT-60 this week has been fun. Relearning things about how radios actually work.  Yesterday, while talking on the Scottsdale Amateur Radio Club’s UHF repeater from our front year was reminded that moving as little as 12 inches could make all the difference. I just changed the direction of how I was […]

Me.

I’m having fun with my new FT-60R/E .  The more I “play” with it the more I learn about what I need to do. Last night a local club had an on the air meeting and I was listening and figured out that there is one problem.  ME. The radio is hearing the output of […]

After trying two other HTs,  I have been able with the help of Gary, N7GJ, the manager of the HRO here in the metro Phoenix area get a radio that I can program. It’s a Yaesu FT-60R/E and you can see it in my shack in the picture below. I know it’s hitting 3 repeaters, […]

It’s Here !

On Tuesday I called Gary, N7GJ  the Manager of the HRO store here in the metro Phoenix area, and ordered a VHF/UHF HT and asked to have it the next day. It came on Wednesday and I now have to open the box, find the manual and hope this time I can understand how to […]

Tried Twice.

I have attempted twice to add a VHF/UHF handheld and each time the unit I purchase would not program. I have to be honest, it’s most likely me, and the computer I have.  I have been able in both cases to sell the radios for what I paid for them.  And in both cases, the […]

After a meeting in the parking lot of WalMart here in Scottsdale, the Baofeng UV-5R has found a new home. With cash in my pocket, I didn’t once look back or even wave good bye.

It’s Here.

The Baofeng UV-5R got here.  And just like the UV-3 I have had nothing but trouble programing it. At first I thought with the keypad it would be easier to program, but I was wrong. No Question that the price on these radios is hard to beat, but I don’t need a unit that drives […]

You’re Not going to Believe.

With each day that passes, I keep thinking about the purchase of a  VHF/VHF handheld radio. And even though I had in my mind gone back to the original radio that I wanted, each day I think there is a better way to go that will give me a radio that will come with more […]

Know What I Want.

As the title above suggests, I know what VHF/UHF portable I want to purchase. It was the same one that I had decided on before but instead of purchasing it, I followed a fellow ham’s advice and purchased the other that I have blogged about in the past here at ARD. This is a radio […]

Back At It.

Even today, I’m doing some thinking and pulling up info on the internet as I get back to my search for a VHF/UHF handheld. If you follow ARD, you know that I was impressed with the Baofeng UV-3, but I had major problems with programing, both manually and using the USB cable. Luckily I found […]
