Military Radios / Re: Yugoslavian RUP-12, Manpack, VHF -- On the air!
« on: March 25, 2019, 04:07:43 PM »
Oh I know Harbor Freight, used to spend a lot in there when I lived in Florida ;-)
Well, that's a bit much, 135... I can buy a PRC-351 for that price, or an RF-10.
Any specific reason to get a RUP-12 other than collecting?
Thanks!

New To Radio / Re: Marine SSB versus HAM
« on: March 25, 2019, 04:04:58 PM »
Hello. Marine radios are usually more rugged than amateur gear. However, browsing frequencies isn't always as easy, as most models require you to program the frequencies you are going to use...

Very nice, how much do they go for? What battery did you use?

Thanks. I have not gotten back to finishing mine yet.. The only difference will be an external balanced charging DIN plug..

Antennas / Re: Tent Pole antenna - could it work ?
« on: January 28, 2019, 01:26:33 PM »
The thing is, if you put the tuner at the radio, you'll have high cable losses. With the UNUN you lower those. Not as good as a 50-ohm match but better. Try with the tuner at the wire, but I would use a UNUN...

Certainly. You would use a 9:1 UNUN to get the impedance down to where the tuner can handle it...

So far so good  :) France is very frustrating though, the bureaucracy is overwhelming, not to mention taxes  ::) Pretty much everything is prohibited. You can't do anything that is remotely unsafe! That of course because if you injure yourself, the government has to give back some of that money it stole >:( The region here is amazing though!

Hello,

Because if those verifications are not implemented the forum gets flooded with spam. Apparently you succeeded, welcome aboard ;) And maybe we only want smart and determined people here  ;)

Hello, very interesting, please post photos! Potting did not work for me, but you might have better luck...

Once your are more settled-in, videos of exploring your new home region should be quite interesting.

I sure hope so! I might have to go to Italy for off-roading though, since of course in France it's prohibited pretty much everywhere... No surprise here... Fortunately Italy is very close :)
