    Yeah, another Jeep Wrangler Antenna thread with options and questions

    As you have seen there are tons of challenges with all jeeps in general. I have seen hundred of JJK,CJ,JL, JT with various antenna's. Each has a compromise. I guess I'm not sure what you looking for someone on here to tell you. It appears you know what you want to do regardless of people giving...

    Hotspot general question

    You need DMR radio to talk to the hotspot. The hotspot is only to take RF and put it on the internet. No PC needed. Most either use wifi or plug a network cable into them

    Yeah, another Jeep Wrangler Antenna thread with options and questions

    Agree with your statements. I'm on the east coast also (SW VA) and am on alot of trails with the JK. The CB Antenna is further in on the mount than the fenders so If it gets yanked off I have other issues. My mirror is also further out. I had the rear mount CB antenna on the spare tire rack but...

    Did you select the scan list on the the channel ? Assign a scan button ? A/B timers set to 1 or higher ? IF set for 0 it will never scan.

    Yeah, another Jeep Wrangler Antenna thread with options and questions

    So on my JK I have run the rugged radio mount for years on my public safety VHF/UHF stuff. Its a decent mount and works for my application. On the drivers side I run a Larsen NMO150 for SAR channels and on the passengers side I run a UHF 1/4 wave for GMRS and TLMR for our county. My CB is a...

    Angeles National Forest - Radioing for help?

    For Xmas this year my wife bought me my Garmin Inreach Explorer+ (upgrade from the Mini) and for the $15.00 a month I wont go anywhere without it. I work in the industry also and have access to many radios systems via work, but Id most likely go to my Garmin if I didn't have cell coverage. Its...

    FCC NPRM MD Docket No. 20-270 changing FCC fee structure, including Amateur Radio. $50 for new licenses and renewals and Vanity License Applications

    I get that. But ya know what a cell phone is voluntary and costs money. Internet costs money and is voluntary. Ham radio is voluntary also. If you don't want to pay then you don't play. Everything in life s voluntary. And everything in life in mandatory. Its all about where you want to spend...

    FCC NPRM MD Docket No. 20-270 changing FCC fee structure, including Amateur Radio. $50 for new licenses and renewals and Vanity License Applications

    I just can't fathom the amount of *****ing about a $35 fee for 10 years. I know ham clubs that charge $50 a year or more to be a "member" yet hams pony up the funds. The fee is the cost of your crappy CCR radio that wont even last 10 years. I have spent $1000's of dollars to get and maintain...

    Newly interested in gmrs-looking for advice

    How far do you plan to talk ? An HT isn't going to get too far if your cell isn't working. Unless there is a great repeater site that is open for public use its not going to work. Then again if the cell system is out due to power outages most likely the repeater is out.

    IC-621-2-TR display problem ?

    As said pop display off and check connections. I have one that has no display. It was pretty corroded. Cleaned up and still nothing. I use it on my APRS anyway so didn't mess much more with it.

    446.000 and Simplex

    Ive seen it already in some areas. Mostly because alot of the younger hams are appliance operators. They order a $25.00 radio on amazon and dump the channels in it and dont know what 12.5 20 or 25 mean and just skip over it. I had one kid go round and round with me on my APRS digi. He said...

PTT, Mic Audio, Discriminator Audio and COR and Ground. The CDM series supports all these pins. Pin numbers are...
