Well I got a Yaesu FT-726R all mode 2m/70cm/6m transceiver and my 2m Halo has just been delivered. Give it a week or two to get all up and running and I will be good to go. That is if anyone is on 2M SSB.

That is the good thing about having  a Ham wife, if all else falls I can drive off 40 odd miles and talk to her on the car's FT-857 and a portable 2m beam antenna. No money wasted.

I was surprised to find a few OMs around here regularly on 2m SSB. Some guys are only there and that's all they do. It seems to have a following. I wish it was also the case for 6m FM, but not a peep around here...
