Not a HAM guy myself, but my dad was from the 1930s to the '80s. On a related note, there is/was this guy AE0Q Glenn, web site here, http://www.qsl.net/ae0q/ where you will see how he hooked up his Blazer Chalet for HAM use, including outside jacks for antenna stuff (?).

Tried emailing him, never managed to catch up with him to find out if he still had the Chalet. PM me if any of you talks to him.

Just passed the test a few weeks ago and I'm trying to get a radio now.

BTW, that HAM-equipped Chalet I mentioned several posts above eventually got sold by "AE0Q" Glenn, and is now owned by one of our Yahoo Chalet forum guys in Boulder CO. It is Chalet #0749, built in 8/76, but the current owner is not a HAM guy.

I have all Kenwood mobile radios, TS-480SAT (HF) with a leg mount keyer, 1 duel-band (144, 440), 1 tri-band (144, 220 & 1.2G) &1 (144). I also have non Ham radios... 1 full spectrum scanner, 1 CB w/SSB, 1 aircraft band, & 1 marine band. This is all stuffed in an 86 CUCV Blazer built for expeditions. I have a Toughbook computer with both street and wilderness GPS North America maps. Being a military Blazer, I have 200 Amps and 24 Volts to play with. I just picked up the study material for my General ticket. I get some pictures as I install the interior.

Cool! :saweet:

Getting your General license is pretty easy. Or, it was when I did. I guess that's been a bunch of years now. Maybe you shouldn't listen to me. :rolleyes:

I've got a couple Yaesu rigs including a 857D, 8900R and a VX-6R. I've also got a Kenwood D710G as well. I've got my advanced qualification for HF but have never dabbled with it.
