I'll play with it more tonight and program in some local repeaters to see how well it does. I also got the programming cable for it since it seems like it would be pretty hard to set it all up from the keypad. It was certainly worth the 40 bux I spent on it.

Was hoping a little elevation and 30 watts would cover the BRC pentagon from fence to fence with fill quieting and out to Gerlach and 12-mile with good quality. My camp could really use some comms, and I would just die for a good APRS setup! Suggestions?
