Emergency Kits







Replaced a county owned Alinco DR-235T 220MHz radio with one of my own for the Emergency Kit.

Decided to upgrade my packet system with a Kantronics KPC-3+ TNC.  This will allow the station to remain on the air and provide coverage for the west side of our county.

Added a new dual band HT to my collection, a 7 watt Baofeng UV-5RW in November 2015.

Added a new DMR HT to my collection, a Tytera DM-380. Arrived from Connect Systems October 28, 2015.

In May 2014 an Alinco DR-635 dual band radio was added to go in my second vehicle.  Along with a Diamond SG7500A antenna with Opek AM-204-7 trunk lip mount, this completes the installation
