    Never heard of anyone, ever, ID'ing a crossband radio. When you ID you are ID'ing both radios at the same time. I feel like KW has the feature for using the 71a as a stand alone crossband repeater,...

    I tried the 75 ohm load on my Nano and saw what you are talking about. My large VNA will normalize on any impedance you feed it it, but the Nano won't. Like you, I've overlooked the Smith Chart too...

    Chameleon with MIL whip, or CB whip. Just remember, any vertical will be a compromise and will require a radial system to be the most effective. Even an end fed would be a better choice, configured...

    We have a $60,000 dollar VNA at work, and I have a nano as well. There is no comparison to the capabilities, but the nano is within a few points of accuracy of our R&S. Well worth the $72 asking...

    Having extra ground plane provided by the large metal box will be fine. Great idea by the way.

    You are on the right track. I haven't used a Nano yet but they are on my radar. Testing and tuning with a decent instrument will teach you more about antenna theory and what works versus what does...

    If you're getting 60 miles you have about reached out as far as you can. We do have a repeater in my area that is 1600' and will do 75 miles, but there aren't that many out there that high.

    I'm assuming you're dealing with analog frequencies and my best guess is that you have the receive PL on and the repeater does not output the tones. If you're doing digital, double check the color...

    If the VX-8R worked, and the radios talked to each other confirming that the UHF side is working, then it could be incorrect tones, having the receive tone on when the repeaters don't output one, or...

    More likely overloading their front end on their radio. Try on low power.

    Even though feedlines can carry high voltages when transmitting, they pose no real fire hazard from normal operation. With lightning however, all bets are off.

    Look up MURS frequencies. You can all use those with the Baofeng and it will be a better radio than any of the FRS garbage.
