CJ, sounds like our best bet of making radio contact will be 10 meter band, although perhaps 6 meter would suffice. I think 10 will work best though. Makes me realize that it's likely I'll need to set up a rotatable antenna to get the most out of it. I'm going to a hamfest tomorrow and will be looking for a switching power supply for indoor use, a high-end battery (NiMH) and charger for my HT, a mic for the HF rig, and all the antenna gear I should need. We'll see just how successful I am.

My Yaesu 2800 runs a max of 65 watts and when I key the mic when hooked to the power pack, the radio shuts down and reboots. Receives fine but draws too much on full power, at least through the outlet. That makes me wonder if I'd get more power using the alligator clips instead... which would be rather inconvenient but might work. Location, central Arkansas, most likely connect on either 6 or 10 meter, unless you're rather close.

CJ, I have a similar setup, however even though it has enough juice to jumpstart an engine, it doesn't put out enough juice to run my Yaesu 2800 at full power. The Yaesu also draws too much power for the accessory outlet in my truck, so when that radio is installed it will be wired directly to the battery. I have two Yaesu 2800s, one for the house and another which will be installed in my truck soon. The power pack has the advantage of being very portable, and rechargeable from either house current or from a vehicle electrical system. But the disadvantage is being unable to run at full power.

In any case, the regulated power supply I'm looking at will be enough to power the entire shack.

CJ, I'm working on getting my 2-meter base antenna up and running, figuring out where to mount it and how to get the cable from the roof and into the house. Also in the midst of looking for a power supply for the HF rig, and reading up on antennas for 10 meter so I can get that one going. Right now my 2-meter base is running on a mag mount ground plane antenna sitting on top of an old CB base station.
