Title: Hey All
Post by: TN Mudflap on February 26, 2017, 02:40:00 PM
Mike here, just moved from Nashville, TN, to the Red Rock area(Marana). Just bought me an Xterra, and was going to purchase a BEEFY one, but price was out of my budget. Sooo, I bought a 2000, with 4wd, and it needs a little work, but it is a solid platform to build on. Thanks for the add....

Also, I am a Motorola radio technician, and know more about mobile radio than I want to, so if anyone needs help with their rig radios, lemme know. I can also get antennas, coax, and do installs.. Plus, the radio that Rugged Radio sell are just cheapo $90 radio from ebay. KT-8900, and I can program them too...

Welcome! Great to have another HAM in the club.  I know a couple of the members are working on getting a license, but that is a smoking deal to get started with a mobile rig.   Getting an antenna outside your vehicle is the most important piece to getting good propagation.  I see people using the handhelds inside a vehicle and wonder why they don't get great results, a mobile install is a world better.

My truck, a Yaesu FTM-350 with Open TX/RX and APRS. And my newest find, a 1986 KLR600, hasn't been started in 25 years... Going to build a lift for the bike on the back to scout... Might be interesting.... ::)

Nice setup!  I've often played with the idea of getting a little dirt bike for exploring, but my garage is already full.
