    Lol I sold my truck today. I had no intentions of selling my truck today I just went to inquire about a new truck and somehow ended up driving my truck home with my wife in tow driving my brand new truck. It still has the plastic covers on the interior bits

    Probably looking at 450 on the ftm 400 shipped in the con us and then 100.00 on the gmrs. Neither come with antennas. That was part of the deal on the truck so it wasn’t left with holes in the fenders.

    Now is the perfect time to drill a hole in the roof seeing the interior is still protected by the plastic!

    Drill it like you mean it!

    Call CQ on 146.52 and see what happens. Either someone will answer surprised anyone is on there or you may get chewed out for calling CQ on VHF. Either way, it will make use of the frequency. I enjoy doing it.

    @Newlife FTM400 still available?

    Really? Cuz people call it quite a bit here in the SLC area on the VHF repeater. Seems to be the preferred "is anyone on here?" call

    Picked up an LDG YT-1200 Tuner for the FT-991A. Easy peasy and much better SWR. Love it.
