    Tall man, nothing special really.
    RCI 2970N2, Turner CS1 desk mic running off an Astron 70M ps, Imax 2K and a 4 element MaCo yagi.
    It's not up as high as I'd like it but it gets the job done.

    Welcome to our “group”.

    Sounds like a good setup to me. The antennas sound good to me.

    Are you a tech license or general or no ticket at all? I does not matter to me. When I got my ham tickets I had a uniden hr2510 and a bunch of 2 meter junk that was given to me 2970 is a good radio I gave it to my son for a present. Now I have more radios and amps than I'll ever use..

    No don't have the time. I've had several 2510/Lincoln's over the yrs. All Doc tuned. Had several other radios wish I could have kept them but needed to thin out the herd.
    I run a Uniden 980SSB with an old school turner mic and a 102" SS whip on the pick up.

    I meant that towards you Tallman. I swear that looks just like Mr Tippy, the pest that lives here.

    RWB runs the 980 and loves it. I think that’s a fine radio.

    Hey! A bunch of us resemble that. We don't pick on people unless you get sanctimonious AND disrespectful.
    In fact this is one of the best forums around. Some of the best technical advice comes from this board.

    Not since I was shopping for a radio and you used the "SITH Mind trick" on me and caused me to buy another Handy Talky just like one I already had. I heard "That is the radio you need, and buy a Galaxy 959 as well."

    Haha, you crazy. I’d talk you into something besides a 959, bigger and more expensive.
