    Engine RPM consisent buzzing on 2M radio

    You have it set up the way I would. I would try adding the ferrites near both ends.

    Engine RPM consisent buzzing on 2M radio

    Sounds like it could be alternator noise. Are your power wires attached directly to the battery? That should alleviate most all of it.

    What is an "Arsenal"

    Excuse the quote of myself. The final legislation and subsequent signing by the Governor happened today. The amendment was made more specific (just applies to the affected items not general trigger jobs, etc. But the penalties are steep and there is no path to legal ownership or transfer...

    What did you do to your Expo Jeep today?

    Hard top went on, tires got rebalanced, diagnosed that the lower steering shaft u-joint is worn out, and that one of the unit bearings needs to be replaced (will probably do both and keep one as a spare).
