Good day, eh!
So my family and I are heading out for a month long RV trip across Canada this summer (Montreal to Banff). I have been getting very excited about this as we are now only a few month away & there’s a million things to do before we take to the road.
I have been planning our itinerary, including driving time, stops, attractions, camp sites, gas consumption (whis is depressing when you actually calculate the $$$ of it!), etc, etc.
Of course, Ham Radio will be an integral part our trip. Not only is this a great tool in case of an emergency, but, it’s fun too! We will be active on VHF/UHF, HF, GFRS, and (new to me) APRS.
I will be bringing along my good old trusty Kenwood TS-440S 100W HF rig (the tank), which I have travelled with in the past & love to operate (I do not operate HF while driving).
I will also be experimenting with APRS. In light of this, I have decided that this was a good time to break down & treat myself to my 1st NEW rig: The Kenwood TM-D710A mobile transceiver. I have done much research in the past few weeks, and look forward to setting up all this cool gear in our RV.
I’ll keep you posted in the weeks to come, including technical specifications of my installation.
73 for now, de Pete
