Mobile Phone Recreational Broadcast Facility K5DH/M
My commute to and from work each time is a 64 mile round-trip. My travel time averages a full hour each means, and even longer in the event that weather’s bad or there is any sort of accident on the highway. I spend on the road would otherwise be wasted if I didn’t have a mobile station, the time. Therefore, as opposed to stewing in regards to the traffic or playing depressing news reports regarding the broadcast radio, we gladly tune the bands l king for contact with the world that is outside! It’s really a great cure for “road rage”. The majority of my mobile operation occurs on HF, while the VHF/UHF radio are at the ready when the need arises. On road trips, we monitor 146.52 MHz, paying attention for possible calls from other motoring hams who’ve spotted my license plates or antennas. THIS PHOTO shows a general view of the position that is operating as seen from the driver’s attention.
My vehicle is just a 2013 Ford Escape. It is the Titanium version with all the 2.0 litre EcoB st turbocharged engine and four wheel drive. The colour is known as “Deep Impact Blue”
My HF radio of preference is Icom’s fabulous IC-7000 transceiver. Continue reading “My mobile section is functional on the 40m through 10m HF bands and also the 2m and 70cm VHF/UHF bands.”
