    Doc's Electronics in Buffalo,NY.

    I am so sorry to hear that Doc passed. I will always remember many times talking to him on the phone. And be ever grateful for the 2 President Lincoln radios that he rebuilt for me a few years ago. R.I.P. Doc!

    What is better, one dual band 2m/70cm antenna or two singles?

    I've run a Comet CA-2X4SRB for a few years. And they are truly great antennas. They handle the weather and whacking tree limbs. But the best thing about them is they do perform very well. And I also run a Jetstream JTM-7505 it works very well. And only cost $35 at R&L Electronics It's the same...

    Sirio Preformer 5000 Magnet Mount Antenna

    I've run Wilson 1000 & 5000 Mag mounts antennas for about 17 years. And nobody could prove that they weren't the best Mags around. Then about 2 years ago I begun to read many reviews about the Sirio 5000 PL. I did purchase one and find that I see a increase of 5-20 miles while parked swapping...

    Skip Shooter Antenna

    I ran a 4.5 foot SS antenna on my 1975 Freightliner for a few years (1980's). It worker very well giving me better performance than the K-40 and Firesticks that I replaced. The old ones were very good. I can't say how well the new ones work. As for Paul's (Tech 833) report all that I can say is...

    Beginner ham antenna questions

    Make a 4-5 element 2 meter beam. It should get into a distant repeater or 2. Then you can make some kind of contact. Or something like this http://arrowantennas.com/inst/146-4.pdf

    2 meter antenna

    The Comet CA-2x4SR antenna is one of the best antennas around. Just get the one with the UHF mount and not the NMO. You will love it. I also find the Jetstream JT-7505B works very well at a cost of $35. I own both. But Comet is the best.

    Programing software choices

    The Baofeng is a cheap priced most basic HT. How much do you expect to do with it? Any software that you do get offers pretty much the same functions for that radio. I use Chirp for my UV-5r and UV-82. And both work very well. I would not spend more on the software than the radio. And end up...
