The official chase vehicle

8 Sep

Well… still trying to get a new date on when I will launch the ballon. However the one item that I knew I was missing was a official chase vehicle.. So what’s a ham supposed to do? That’s right! Over come all obstacles… Once the wife says its ok.

As a result, I have now purchased a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon edition. This weekend I wired it all up to have my little FT-817. However I am thinking of putting a FT-857 in instead. Would love to hear your thoughts on this. Any how, while I have so far good signal reports UHF/VHF). I still need to get the HF side working (need an antenna). More to follow.
