This is my forum for telling the world what's keeping me busy these days.

This is my afternoon "walkabout" rig - Yaesu FT-817ND with a 12 volt 7 AH
lithium ion battery pack (homebrew) attached. By using external power I can get the full 5 watts on transmit, instead of the 2.5 watts on internal battery.
