Been a HAM for about 12 years now....KT4AL....Advanced.
Not into it much anymore but was a "big gun" on 2mtrs up to 1296.
After a hurricane blew down my antenna farm I haven't had the heart to do all that work again.
Still have a load of Hard Line and what not rolled into the corner of the house incase I want to do it all again.

KC0ERE I travel for work so I don't get on the air as much as I'd like. I also need to get my Icom set up in my Econoline. I bought it in 2008 and still don't have it done.

I've been a Ham since 1991. My callsign is K3YYZ (vanity call). My old call was N3LKT. I collect surplus military radio gear and don't do much operating HF or otherwise. In 1999 I wanted to put my radio gear (RT-524A, R-442A) in a vehicle so I bought my first military vehicle, a 1986 CUCV Blazer. Then in 2001 bought a 1987 HMMWV M998. I put radios in it as well, and converted it to a M1026 slantback weapons carrier with winch and dummy M2. About 2 years ago I upgraded the radio in it to a SINCGARS RT-1439 with the AM-7239 amp. I have since sold both vehicles and most of the radios and bought my Barstow M151A2.

I have a PRC-77/AM-2060 combo to put inthe MUTT but I can't bring myself to drill holes in it yet. I may leave it as it came, don't know yet.
1979 AM General M151A2 "Barstow"
19?? AM General M151A2
1987 AM General M1026 HMMWV (Sold 2012)
1986 Chevy M1009 CUCV Blazer (Sold 2006)
2 M416 Trailers (Sold, wish I had them back)

I like it so much that I sold my IC735 & 737 & got another one for the base here

they have very nice audio given the heil mic elements they use

I really have nothing bad I can say about them

I forgot to add mine to the list - KD8QEQ. I have a prc-77 in my MUTT and it's fun to play with. I don't have a home station as of yet, but would like to one of these days!
