Ham Radio in the Truck
My Defender is equipped with a Yaesu FT-2900 75W 2-meter radio and a Byonics MTT4BT 8W APRS tracker. I run Diamond Antenna NR770HB antennas and Diamond's RG316 cable.
My tracker is hard-wired into an ignition-switched fuse panel and permanently mounted. If the truck is on, it is probably transmitting.
If I'm travelling cross-country, you might find me on 146.52 or a regional linked repeater system. If I'm out in the desert with friends, I will be monitoring our truck-to-truck simplex frequency only.
