Hi,

Wow that's a heck of a setup. Very nice I'm a tad jealous but very happy for you.

Thanks for sharing your setup.

My pleasure! It's taken a long time to get it right, and I'm almost there. I need a spot for my marine and aircraft radios. It's been a real breeze to monitor so far. The commercial stuff is off the charts. No scanner can touch it. Thanks for your comments.

Manny

Very nice, Manny! As always, it's a pleasure to look at your shack since you do it right....neat, clean and organized.

Thanks for the updated pics.

Thank YOU Russell! I HATE messy set ups. You know at some point you will have to get in the back let's say, for something. I'm not in favor of deciphering which cable goes to what. Thats another reason I use the Rigrunner instead of having a dozen or more AC jacks plugged in for radios and all the accessories.

I believe it to be a Harris brand console, I'm not sure exactly. It came with the car so the brand never really
meant anything to me. I say Harris because I remember taking off a sticker ( I hate stickers) that was on it.
This was back in April-May when I got her.

Nice shot of the shack lit up Manny.

Monitoring the marine band should be easy for you, given your location in relation to L.I. Sound.

Which radio are you planning to get and will you use a base antenna outside the house?

I'm going to pick up a Midland NT1VP to use on our frequent summer trips to the ocean. It's inexpensive and will satisfy my curiosity to see just what it will pick up along the shoreline.

Looks great... I like the cubbies with the Uniden Scanners. My head would go crazy listening to all of that!

I also noticed the HT1550 and HT1250s back there too... Looks like you have a nice collection of portables!

And as always, the CDMs!!!

Russell, I'm thinking about getting this one:

Standard Horizon Explorer VHF w GPS Class D Black GX1700B | eBay

I like the radio overall, the small size, and the built in GPS feature if I ever hit the water. I will use it with an indoor antenna as the room the radios are in, is almost 500 FT above sea level. With all local utilities underground, I have no intermod issues!

I did the cubies to separate all the cables and things for each radio. Love my CDMs but I cannot seem to put my 1550XLS down! It uses the same charger and battery as the 1250s so I never run out of juice! LOL...

Good idea, probably gets crazy with all those cables. I can relate!

Having multiple HT's (the HT1250s and your HT1550) must be great for family communications on GMRS and FRS and what not. Especially in that great of a condition! They look awesome in the pic above. I never realized how great having two was until I finally bought another!

Yeah, I love my HTs! I use them on GMRS as I am licensed for that. No FRS though as the 5 watts on the radios are over the legal limit. I doubt the FCC will be on my tail if I do use 5 watts, but I like to stay legal regardless.Thats just me!

There are the channels that you can use 5 watts on, the shared FRS/GMRS ones.

But yeah... Very useful!

Can you not set the output power on them to a lower output? On my Icom I have for work it has three 'power' settings...high, medium, and low (and the wattage is specified in the manual but I don't remember it off hand).

I can switch 4 watts/1 watt on my MTS2000... The HT1550 probably has some way of doing that.

Correct! Channels 1-7 can be used in 5 watt mode if you are GMRS licensed

Low power for the 1550XLS is 1 watt. FRS allows 500 milliwatts max power.

Yes it does! 4 watts high / 1 watt low (UHF) VHF adds 1 watt on the high side.

I't's no big deal! I use only a few channels and I mix them up! 1 channel TX, different channel receive.
PL TX, DPL receive etc. Keeps those little kiddie radios from interfering.

Very smart thinking.

I assume that requires the help of a repeater, though, right?

Also, Merry Christmas to you and your family!
