    Enid Hamfest

    This event opens at 6:30PM and is open all day on Saturday. It's the last hamfest of the year. https://enidarc.org/enidhamfest
  9. I recently acquired a Kenwood TS-480SAT.... because everybody needs more than one HF radio, right? My goal is to build a clean, easily portable setup for things like Field Day, Route 66 on the Air, and Oklahoma QSO party. Kenwood makes a "sled" (MB-480) that puts the main transceiver body and the detached control head onto a single piece of steel. This is great. Except for one small detail: there isn't enough room between the transceiver and the display if you're using an RT Systems DB-9 to USB cable for rig control. Well, there is enough room so long as you don't want to tilt the display. So I found this on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001S2PYTQ/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 These come in a variety of flavors, so you need to make sure that you are ordering the right connector on the right axis. I need a female to attach to the body, then 90 degrees to a male connector for the project, which is listed above. If you find yourself in need of an adapter, these guys might have the solution.
  10. Anderson Power Poles power rating & wire sizes: PP45 = 10 AWG, 45 amp PP30 = 12-14 AWG, 30 amp PP15 = 16-20 AWG, 15 amp Available from virtually every ham radio supply shop. https://powerwerx.com/anderson-power-powerpole-sb-connectors How to install video from K7AGE:

    New radio and antenna

    I would choose RG-213 or better for a 75' run, especially if you are going to UHF. Dave

  13. Setting up a new system, Yaesu FT-7900 with a dual band J-pole. My cable run will be between 65 and 75 feet long. Looking for suggestions on which coax to use, thinking that RG8 or RG213 would be sufficient with LMR-400 being ideal but overkill. If anyone has any spare cable they would be interested in selling or suggestions let me know please. Thanks Russ
