Re: An Increase in Violent Street Crime

Any big city - not just NO - is a scary place for the non-local. Living in AK makes me a non-local just about evrywhere. Years back, I took a gig in the remains of the old Soviet. My dad freaked out when he hears I was flying into Moscow. I told him, hey - it's not Miami.... About the only place I f...

Re: Counterpoise wavelength

The Yaesu will give better service, be easier to program and be of much better quality.

I move to Yaesu from Icom VHF gear some time back. Just - to me - easier to use.

Good luck!
