    Anyone have experience with Yeasu 726R?

    I used them for years, even when they first came out. But only for satellite communication. I later bought a 736 which is much better at tracking. I still have two 726 units. They are not bad but are now vintage.

    Question on setting up a bench

    I agree with what others have said. Make it comfortable to you. Most used equipment with in arms reach. That is the practical approach. Now there is another approach you should consider.

    Updated video shop tour

    I got into drones a while back so never really bothers with helicopters. They are interesting however. I have one boat with a K&B 7.5 outboard on it. My son is the car and truck guy. He races at several tracks around the county. He wants me to start doing "RC" related repairs. But just no time.

    Updated video shop tour

    During the Christmas break I shot a short video of the shop. The old video was several years old and lots of things changed. I know some of you have already seen the shop but decided to share with the rest. Just a bunch of old junk collected over the years.

    Digital frequency display for the Tram D201 radios.

    That does look nice. Like LC said any noise issues? With the room you have around that board a shielded box is doable. Thanks for sharing another one of your great creations.

    strange o-scope probe. what is he referring to here?

    The octopus tester or as we like to call it "curve / signature tracer" is a great tool to have on any techs bench. Handy piece of gear for testing components and circuits if you have no schematic. I recently built one in an old low band width scope ( 500 KHz). This made a useless piece of...
