Darklyte, You are going to LOVE THE 857d. I love mine so much, I bought a second one from a friend. The 857's are my primary "portable" radios I use when out in remote parts of the U.S. I try to use minimal power when out in remote areas by myself or with a fellow gun-nut/ham-buddy.

Good luck when you take your test. You'll find that ham radio is a really cool hobbie that also has many practical benefits. For one, you have a form of communications that can help you when cell phones don't work. One example is like in the valley floor of Death Valley. Up until about two weeks ago, there was NO radio repeaters or cell phones that would work out there. With an HF ham radio, you can get out and call for help if needed.

Two weeks ago, some friends of mine installed a 6 meter repeater east of Independence at 9000'. It's great because it's coverage now covers almost all of the eastern Sierras and the valley floor in Death Valley national park. Cell phones can't do that!!!!

Let me know when you pass your test and if you ever need some advice, shoot me a PM anytime. I may not know the answer, but I can direct you to it.

In case you haven't seen it, qrz.com is THE website for amateur radio folks. EVERYONE in ham radio hangs out there. ...Everyone.

Last but not least, don't ever be surprised by very rude ham radio folks on some websites. For some reason, there is a minority in ham radio that believe they are "better than everyone else." There is a certain "rude" factor with some licensed hams and best advice I can give you, is to ignore them and don't fall into their miserable lives. You'll see as you get deeper into the hobbie and explore certain ham website forums.

Take care.

Where is a good place to get started?

I am a Former Marine RO 2531/0621 so I know some of the basics in regards to radio stuff. My longest shot was from Southern Thialand to Okinawa using a MRC-138 (Vehicle Mounted 400 watt HF radio), not counting satelite work.

Mostly looking for handheld and vehicle comms right now.

I have read the entire thread, maybe I am dense.

Badreligion.... Radio is magic. 400 watts is tons of power. 99% of the HF radios now only put out 100 watts. That and a piece of wire will get you around the world.

Two weeks ago i was camping in Arizona. I used a mere 5 WATTS (known as "QRP" in ham radio world) to talk to a guy down in Tasmania. I regularly talk all across north america and south america with 50 watts or less. That's very typical, especially when propagation (atmospheric conditions) are good.

There are many "QRPers" in ham radio. We love to use minimal power with crude antennas. Check out http://www.qrz.com to learn everything there is about ham radio.

I am not yet a ham. I am waiting on the test date!
I just purchased a Yaesu FT-817ND.
I am just getting started, so I hope that is a good choice for a first radio.

Alinco DR-605 for the shack
Kenwood 2m mobile that I use for events/digital stuff

Wish List: FT-857/897 or I might settle for an FT-450, but I would like the all-mode 2m/440 in the 8x7s.

Member (BOD for another month) K6ARP (http://www.k6arp.org)

I generally hang out on the club repeater system while mobile and operate 1st/3rd Thursday night net as Net Control. Our high level repeater (2m/220/440) has generator backup and are up around 4600'. 2m covers from south of Stockton almost to Bakersfield. It plays well across the valley (fades out around Newman on the I-5 corridor to the north and works at least from Kettleman City to the south.) Farthest I've hit it was from Black Mountain over near Santa Margarita (mountain top to mountain top, hardly a struggle at 20watts).

Low level repeater (440) in Clovis has IRLP (8280), Echolink and autopatch with 440 link up the hill.

I've worked a few community events. Never made a contact on HF. Worked one contest (June '10 VHF/UHF from CM95). Done a few local t-hunts (nothing like the So-Cal stuff).

A friend from a Linux group got me into radio when he was talking about APRS.

I'm a No-Code General class Appliance Operator.

Cool APRS track dude! I travel to Fresno regularly. I go to 41 and Hearndon to train at a Martial arts dojo just west of there. I see you were very near there this week.

It's interesting to see stuff. My track is usually boring. Home, work, (maybe lunch), home. I keep thinking about getting a map out and trying to "write" something with my track just for S&G.

I usually head up to River Park area (Blackstone and Nees, kinda) about once a week or so. I was up that way on Sunday to a shop. Picked up a carry case, ear muffs and cleaning kit.

Did you get my second reply to -10? There's a short cut to reply with the Nuvi/OT2m but I'm not sure I did it right. -9 is my mobile setup. I've got APRSDroid on the phone and I think it's -11, but I'm not sure. I used to run an iGate up here but the MVS blew the control fuse on the board. It's been fixed by a friend and just haven't been in a hurry to get it back.

NO! It's only 5 watts and you'll be disappointed. The 817 is like giving a beginner dove hunter a .410 shotgun to hunt with! You have to be an expert shot to hit anything with a .410 when you're new. Same goes with the 817!

Spend an extra 100 bucks or so and get an 857d. You'll be sorry otherwise. PM me if you have other questions...... I help many new people get into the hobby.

Well, it looks like I will get used to getting disappointed then, I already bought the 817. I took the advice from a friend who has one and he told me that it was THE radio to get. I just figured he knew what he was talking about.

if you are an outdoors type of guy who goes camping, that would be a great radio. its made for that kind of use.

I got the 857d because its almost the same, its small portable but can be used as a base station too.

if you cant return it, sell it, i might know a buyer.

I have decided to sell this radio. It is just like new with the box and all paperwork. I only charged the batteries and turned it on to listen to it. It is in perfect shape. I will put it up for sale in the marketplace.

I've heard good things on a local repeater about these:

They said the menus are hard to use, the manual is terrible, but the audio is clear and loud.

Based on the fact that kd6daa was issued on 11-19-1991 and kd6dzz was issued on 12-17-1991, you would have had to be originally licensed within that month.


P.S.

42 this year huh?? You got your license a little early...in 1991 you would have been 32... I got my ticket in 1991 too and it was mostly old men then.

N6XXX

FT-8800 in the car
FT-897D in the house (I've had this radio for a few years and still have't put an antenna up)
VX-5R in the BOB
various other old HTs in boxes somewhere.


I'm primarily on 147.000 in NorCal when I'm commuting.

Passed my Tech on Sunday. Took the General and failed so time to open the general book and study for that one next. Figure I will be ready for it in a few months. Time to start buying equipment and getting on the air. Looking at the Yaesu FT-857d or 897d for mobile/base station and the 8R for handheld.

Just got my Tech license last month.

I got one of those new Wouxun HT.

Still trying to figure it out and program in the frequencies.

No base unit yet. That is next on the list.

Between guns, photography, and radios I'm going broke real real fast.
