Going Home With a Kenwood TS-480HX

K0PIR

I'm an Amateur Radio enthusiast. I love the hobby and experimenting with radios, antennas and software. On my YouTube channel I upload videos on the Icom 7300 and Icom 7610 along with Ham radio software programs. I hope to inspire people to try new things in Amateur Radio.

Hi Rich,
May you work much DX with your new radio!

i hope you don’t mind my question on a slightly different topic:

i read where you planned to use your ICOM 7610 remotely using RS-BA1 software. I run that scenario at home from my living room to work FT8 using WSJT-x. However, I don’t think I would leave home with my antennas connected to my radio because of the risk of lightning, even though I have some lightning protection. What do you use that gives you confidence to leave home for an extended time with your antennas connected?

Have you ever looked at Paradan ant disconnect. Might be a fit for this.

On your truck, how are you avoiding low slung tree limbs in residential areas. I have trouble with my 2 meter mag
mount. At least the magmount pops off

thanks

Alan, Thank you for the information you post, I find it interesting and very helpful at times. I have a 7300, the 756 Pro III, and and a Yaesu FT-857D as far as HF goes. I really have fun with the 7300. Thanks for being there. You the man. Joe Murphy
