Re: Thoughts on future "FM birds" (was: proposal for maximizing fm le o contacts)



I also have an HTX-10.  I've had a lot of fun on SSB, but mainly keep it
squelched on FM.  Is there a way to scan the 5 memories?  I keep 29.600
simplex and the 4 repeater splits in memories.

Please forgive the deviation from the main topic, but thought I'd ask.

73,
