This is a Galaxy vhp 98 . It's a 10,11, 12 meter radio. It will dead key 4 to 100 watts and swing 300 watts. Has built in amplifier.
I use it to drive a bigger box that drives the next big box. I remove the amplifiers in the winter time the cold not good for them.

Mine is mounted on an angle on the passenger side of the center console up against the seat with it all the way pushed back using heavy duty all weather velcro mounts.

I mount the motor maul and amplifiers in a tool box under the cover of the bakflip. I run 2 gage wire under the truck frame in to the box . I use lmr400 cable. when amp is in the truck. I had to put lead tape around the computer. The tool box has rubber coating on it inside and out. to keep rf from getting out. If go on the railroad tracks that's channel 11 or the superbowl channel 6. And you hear 757 in the big apple tree you be talking to me. 73's

Yes it's a 16 pill . Stomper is a 8 pill . made by some one from the superbowl. I did use a 4 pill to drive the 16 . It went up in smoke. The 8 with a lower dead key will swing that 16 pill. I'm going to get a 24 pill in the spring and see if it f**k with the truck.

Damn. That's some serious power there. I get out ok with my two 2879's, I can't imagine that much juice. But you know as good as me that even a stock radio can get out as well as one modded to the hilt if the conditions are right.

Roger that. Yeah, like I said I don't really have the power to run with with the big dogs. I just talk locally to my crew and shoot some skip sometimes. I usually hang out on 25.

Nice base antenna. One of my buddies has a beam and gets out nicely. I just have a Galaxy base and an Antron 99. I use it to talk locally not so much for skip but I have has some contacts from down south. Mostly Alabama and Florida.
