Here's some ham radio information...

I'm a no-code Technician. My call sign is K6BMJ (was KG6AFW).

Hand-held radio is an ICOM IC-T8A tri-band HT ("HT" is lingo for "hand-held"). Accessories are an HM-46 speaker microphone, a BP-197 3-AA battery case, a BP-200 Ni-MH battery case, a CP-12L DC car adapter, and a borrowed Clifford Vista III-R 13.8 VDC regulated power supply. See the ICOM IC-T8A features, specifications and images.

Mobile radio is a Yaesu FT-90R VHF/UHF dual-band FM transceiver. It came with the MH-36A6J DTMF Microphone and the YSK-90 Separation Kit. Wow, this thing is small! After a thorough benchtop going-over, it will be installed in the Cherokee. See the Yaesu FT-90R features, specifications, and images. (21Aug02 - $195)

My mobile antenna is a dual-band Larsen NMO 2/70 (works on the 2 meter and 70 cm bands) with a NMO-MM mag mount.

My base antenna is a Comet model GP-15 tri-band and works on 50/52 MHz (6 meter), 140/144 (2 meter), and 440/446 (70 cm) bands. See the Comet GP-15 specifications.
