    Friday Night HAM Radio NET

    I have been trying to get on for about a year, on DMR. Last friday I was able to hear bits and pieces of the net, but it was not continuous. I am using a pi-star setup for DMR only. I have Brandmeister DMR Bridge 3148905 and K4CEG configured as static talk groups, and at net start I link to...

    Friday Night HAM Radio NET

    Still trying to get DMR working. New radio (DJ-MD5). I have never tried DMR before. Got into D-Star just a month ago. Not connecting properly to the TG. I am not sure if it is the radio setup or my hotspot setup. I will try to get it sorted out by next Friday. Monitoring on the WEB...

    Startup/vehicle choice

    The L6 (4.0) generally has a longer life than the V8 4.7 but as long as the v8 is maintained and kept from overheating it does very well. But I like the 45RFE tranny that comes with the V8 better than the 42RFE normally with the six. My wife has an L6 '99' and mine is a V8 '00'. Both were...

    Startup/vehicle choice

    I am biased towards the WJ (second gen Grand Cherokee), but I don't think you can go wrong with a YJ, TJ or LJ either. The sweet thing about jeeps is there are a ton of aftermarket parts available and the prices are competitive. My WJ has a shorter wheel base than the JKs and turns well on...

    Big Tuna Presents: Pegasus Rising

    Very nice! I had a similar idea, but tucked them up under the back of the winch mount plate. Also tied to the factory circuit but I had to replace the factory connectors because one was intermittent.
