I've found an extended freq. mod.

The famous mod for ext. frequency on 2 mtr and 70 cm ( the 4th solderpoint). Is more extended as we all know.

When you remove this solderpoint the freq. range is 6 mtr as well. You can transmit between 50 Mhz and 54 Mhz The only thing is that you need a antenna for this frequency.

Diamond do have such a antenna for about $30.00 I'm not responsible for any dammage on your porto. It works very good for me.

What is a diamond antenna 15"? If it is simply a Diamond antenna that is 15 inches long then that is a crap shoot and likely the answer is no. If it was designed for 6m than the answer is yes. You need a 6m antenna for 6m. An exception is using a 2m 5/8 wave baseloaded antenna on6m where it functions as a 1/4 wave but it is about 48 inches long.

    My first thought was the i.r.s. may be interested in a long term money making scam without proper taxes being paid..probably more than electronics involved.

    My first thought was why hasn't someone paid him a visit. I mean, his address is posted above.
  • @ beakster1715:
    Good news! I opened an appeal case after eBay sided with superhawkwss6. I also opened an IC3 case & sent that information to eBay. Within an hour they responded, reversed their decision and returned all of my money. Unfortunately, superhawkwss6 stole my CB radio and eBay will likely not suspend or close his account, but rather allow him to continue his criminal activity. I think I'll still file a report with our sheriff's dept (the sheriff is a friend of mine) though I know this type of crime isn't worth their time. This guy needs to be stopped and I'm certainly going to do my best to make that happen.
