I have an Icom W32A HT and I have a harness it for and can wear it while riding “Onyx”. I have been Ill and recovering from my work related shoulder injury. I am just missing and need 2 items for the rig, an BNC to PL-259 cable for the HT and a 12v battery to power my HT. You might say that is simple, but I lost my job due to my injury, lost the workmen’s comp due to my Maximum Medical Improvement (MMI), (Thanks Alabama) and on a very long wait for Social Security Benefits. I have not an income since July of ‘08 or a job since December of ‘07. Makes having a life difficult. I have a bed and I get to eat. I have access to the internet, I now have “Onyx” to get around in. And most of all I still have my Sharon.
I am wanting to get my HT back up and running. I hate that I can not make use of my Amateur Radio Ticket, Where I am located I need a power amp for the HT. At current prices a 2 meter rig cost as much as a power amp for the HT. Even if I found a good price on a 2 meter rig, I am still waiting on my benefits. I believe the trees are currently blocking my 2 meter antenna by the house. This make hitting the local repeaters almost impossible. I need an local “Elmer” to look in on me and help a bit. I have been trying to reach local radio clubs but with no success as of yet. I have recently found out about echo link, just need a usb headset and mic to get on the air that way… Still boils down to money… Well I am still alive, and kicking, things will work out. More later Guys. 73 de KF4SWS and Onyx.
