    Off road lights

    My new Jeep has some Baja Design light and they are very impressive. Maybe KC's are good now but I still remember back in the day when every Daylighter you saw was rusty.

    CJ to TJ what to expect

    Decided to get a nice new 2004 (compared to my 60 year old CJ) TJ and just wondering what others who have done similar have experienced. Other than being able to drive on the freeway I'm not expecting a whole lot of difference cept maybe having ac now :)

    Traveling with a dog

    I use the ones that slip over the dogs head. Full 360 degrees of light. USB rechargeable. Seven bucks on ebay or twenty at your local dog store. Comes in many colors. Pretty much a requirement for a black dog.

    "Noise Cameras" for loud pipes?

    I love these cars that make so much noise it startles me but then I notice "hey, for all that noise it sure didn't go very fast".

    The ubiquitous Baofeng UV-5r: First impressions

    That's what I like about the 152, big screen, big buttons, big battery. Plus I can use it as a club if necessary. Can't do that with my Yaesu :)

    The ubiquitous Baofeng UV-5r: First impressions

    I've been using my AR-152? at half a dozen Ares events and its performed flawlessly. Yes, if I decide to go up on Mt.Vaca I'll bring the FT-60 as the Baofengs tend to have issues in high rf environments. I have a couple more as spares or loaners.

    Microwave for truck camper

    I've never heard of pecron until the other day. Are they new to the scene? Many times I want to get going in the morning, not cooking and cleaning up after breakast. A microwave sausage biscuit or so works great so I can get on my way. One of the arms on the turntable broke on my microwave but...

    FRS Radio Mounted Outside Vehicle?

    I have a baofeng gmrs9R. Came preprogrammed. Has a removable antenna. Just add a magnet mount antenna and you're good to go. Other than applying for a $35 license thats pretty plug and play. Btw, I am licensed. WRVR507. Only bad part is I've not memorized my call sign since unlike my ham call I...

    2m HAM (Dual): Monitor two 2m frequencies?

    Just finished installing the FTM-6000. Not a dual vfo but it should do fine for my purposes. Perhaps I should have given the Alinco a look. Gets nice reviews.'

    2m HAM (Dual): Monitor two 2m frequencies?

    Wow, I hope my mic doesn't have that capability, I'll be mighty embarrassed if it does! My 2730 in the Jeep is separated and way up under the dash. Trying to plug in the correct speaker port for programming is a pita. Something to keep in mind when mounting it up.

    Fairly easy to switch if you aren't bouncing along a dirt road :)
