The VX-6R has arrived, the battery has been charged, frequencies added and it's official: I like it! The specs say the 1.25m output is only 1.5W. Apparently, that's enough for me. According to RF Finder, the nearest 1.25m repeater is 28 miles away and the radio keys that repeater. I didn't get a response but I'm happy that it made it that far. I'll try it again tomorrow when the world is awake.

Incidentally, it's pretty easy to program. The standard +/- is already built into the program so you only need to enter the receive freq and CTCSS tone, if any.
