    Installing the program twice would be a solution, on two screens. You'll have to play around and see if you can run two sdr's in one screen...

    Hi, Using SDR-CONSOLE, with more than one dongle, is it possible to have more than one screen working with a water fall in parallel? Cheers Camerart

    Has anyone solved an issue of the SM-50 creating RF on the transmit audio ? The microphone is only one month old. It did not create any issues for the first 30 days but now it appears to be the problem - creating RF on the transmit audio. What could be the issue and how would it be corrected ? Thank you.

    W6TZI started a thread 6 band dipole antenna in Antennas
    6 Band Parallel Dipole Array Three years ago I put up a 15/17 meter dual dipole array, simply a coax going to a 1:1 balun then to the dipoles. The dipoles were separated by 6", were 32' above ground, and flat topped using ropes and pulleys attached to other structures. The SWR was 1.7:1 on both bands and the antenna worked very well. To maximize the use of space I took the 2 band antenna down and replaced it with a 6 band version which covers 6, 10, 12, 15, 17, and 20 meters. A folded dipole is used for 20 meters, the rest are full size dipoles. The dipoles are made of cheap and light weight 450 ohm window line, 2 antennas per strip of window line, and the antenna lengths are calculated using the formula 468/f mHz 468/18.1 = 25.85' = total length of dipole for 17m. There is a left and right side to a dipole so 25.85/2 = 12.9' so 2 each 13' pieces of ladder line will make the 17/10m dipoles, another 2 each 13' pieces will make the 20/6m dipoles, and 2 more 13' pieces for the 15/12m...

    Just to be sure, I plugged my FT-270 into the charger after I made my last post. Sure enough, when I went into the shack this morning, the red light was still on, even though the battery was charged to a full 8.8V when I turned it on.

    I have no idea why I said "store" instead of "save." You are correct. It seems odd that after all the bells and whistles added to this rig, they wouldn't have an "end of charge" indication. I would imagine I won't use 80% of the functions on this one. Great little handheld for when I'm away from home or car. Bill

    You should be fine continuing to charge the radio the way have been doing. Are you sure that flashing message doesn't say "SAVE?" If it is SAVE, it means the battery saver is active and you can pretty much ignore it. A lot of the older Yaesu radios are like this. My FT-270R (the successor to the VX-170) and FT-60R are both like that. You can shut if off if it bothers you. See Item 37 in your SET MODE .

    Please just always ignore assholes. I pranked one of the purists at field day a few years ago by using a UV-5R on the talk in frequency. He was one of the blowhards that thought Baofengs should be banned from use because he could tell one a mile away. I told him I was on my Kenwood hand held and he told me I had a great signal and great audio. I walked around the corner while talking to him on the UV-5R and several of us had a great laugh when he looked up and I was talking to him on a "POS" radio. My advice to Tony is to keep trying. Most Hams are good people.

    WB0HYQ started a thread Handheld Radios VX-170 in Yaesu
    I purchased a barely used VX-170 last year. Very happy with it. There are two nagging things I cannot figure out. Even after pursuing the manual completely, there is no mention of two things: 1) When connected to an external power source, the red light comes on. Does it ever go out when the battery is charged? Does it turn green when charged? Or, do I simply have to trust the battery is charged after 24 hours? (currently, I am pulling the charge plug out after 24 hours.) 2) There is a constantly flashing message on the LCD screen of "store". No matter how many times I store the current repeater freq into a memory, this "store" keeps flashing. I cannot make it go away. Any advice here? Bill

    gnuuser replied to a thread Help getting on air in Amateur Radios
    if your limited in space a spiral mag loop antenna would work well. but a pixie radio is extremely low power! 1/2 a watt on full power. chances are you may not make a contact with it but it depends on who hears you, you need to be licensed to use the amateur radio, and you need to make sure the frequency you are using is within the scope of your license for instance 7.23 is in the extra class license and a tech cannot use that frequency here is a website for the spiral loop antenna. www.nonstopsystems.com/radio/frank_radio_antenna_SM0VPO.htm

    Could be, you didn't have a CTCSS sub-audible tone set on your transmitted signal and you were not making the repeater?
