I'm not all that familiar with 2 meter except to know that it is mainly line of sight except during conditions when some long distance is possible. I live on a remote island out here in the pacific. The closest repeater is about 80 kilometers away so I will mainly be using just plain frequency radio. I will be a technician in April but I have been in study. What I would like to do is use a mobile 2 meter as a base station with a regulated power supply running into a 1,500 watt linear amplifier, some sort of VHF antenna as high as I can get it. Is this a reasonable set up?
