RE: Portable Operation



Jim,
	The TH-D7 is an excellent portable satellite radio. I use one with an Arrow
antenna when hiking and it works very well. One caution: I found that the
SM34 microphone when used with an external earphone in full duplex causes
serious feedback. I changed to the HMC-3 "head set" and the problem was
solved. I would also recommend using the procedure outlined by A.J. Farmer
AJ3U (attached) for operating on the satellites.

AJ3U's operating procedure:

Thanks to all who replied, both on and off the list.
After reading some more product reviews (and the
manuals!), I decided on the Kenwood TH-D7AG. It should
be here this week, along with a bunch of accessories I
ordered for it.
Now to learn how to use it!
