Going Home With a Kenwood TS-480HX
I will be heading home today. It’ll take a couple of weeks because I am in no hurry and I want to operate in the June VHF contest next weekend. My plan is to be in the Smoky Mountains and in a campground operating with my new transverter, J-Pole antenna and 6 meter beam I picked up before I left home. More on that in the next post.
There’s a new rig in the truck and it is the Kenwood 200 watt TS-480 HX. I am very impressed with it so far. Connected to the Scorpion Black Widow I should be able to work some DX.
I have installed it in a temporary position on the center console. I like the mic connected to the base and I like the detached head where I can see and operate easily from the front seat. Fortunately I also got an external speaker for it mounted in the center of the dash below the radio in the truck. This is a nice sounding speaker.
Thanks to Dave, KF0XQ. He brought it to me when I was in Chesterfield, MO visiting Bill, WA0AFD (Another Fine Day).
