Re: Re: TS-2000X

It is not just the L banders. This past weekend I heard a California station 
talking to a VK and they seemed to be bragging over the power they had. The 
Cal. guy was using 50 watts on the 435 uplink and the VK was using 100watts.

Come on guys fix your receving system if you need that much power to hear 

I worked the VK after he was done with California station and told him my 
uplink power was 8 watts. He did not get the hint. I guess all that RF has 
caused some plaque to build up on the get clue section of his brain.
