    I'd stay away from trying to mount to rain gutters or the down spout. They are usually made of stamped sheet metal or thin plastic extrusions and are not rigid enough to support a mast and antenna.

    I was given a telescoping mast by another ham and I was able to attach it to a pipe used to hold up some fencing with hose clamps. Works like a charm. It also supports the wind gauge of my weather...

    All I did with the ones in my bedroom was install switches in the power cords for the lights. Eventually I'm going to rip the guts out of them and just make them into switch lights.

    The only other model of FT-60 I'm aware of is the FT-60E (European market) and the manual downloadable from the Yaesu website covers both models.

    It sure sounds like an CTCSS issue to me, even though you said none of the radios had CTCSS programmed into them. Is there was some way you could check for sure, rather than taking someone's word...

    It's probably physically possible to program MURS frequencies into your Baofeng, but you're getting into legality issues. The FCC regulations prohibit the use of non-type certified radios on radio...

    If you can't find the original HM-7, a Heil HMMiC might be a good replacement. I used one on my iCom until I went to a headset and foot switch.

    I've never placed too much faith in the battery indicators on mobile or HT radios. They are notoriously inaccurate. I usually recharge my batteries when they quit operating the radio.
