  1. yep im in that category, of being locked up under the jail also....
  2. this is how i did the install on my 07 jkur. i installed the base under the factory infinity amp and remote mounted the head above the mirror, im using the 5\8 over 5\8 shorty.
  3. with the v1 programing you have to put the repeater on the channel that is the freq of the repeater ie. for a 600 repeater you have to use channel r17 or 17r or 25, dont remember exactly what it was on the v1 i programed, i also used the software to do the one i did. so i set up the tones and the freq shift in it
  4. i notice you dint include the 771g, its a beasty antenna and does great for the gmrs freq as thats what its tunned for, i have 2 of them one on a uv5r and one one a gmrsv1, yesterday i went for a hike and hit the repeater that was over 45ish miles. granted i was prob about 9000ft but the repeater is in the denver. ive hasd no issues with the 771g the others however i cant speak for as i dont have them..
  5. im pretty sure he had one of the guys from the front range gmrs user group come set it up with a nanovna and trim it and set the swr.
  6. i have mine in my center console. my center console is not a large one as its in a 95 jeep. i havemy fan set to be on all the time, and ive nvr had it overheat on me yet. i also live in colorado so its def not because it hasnt been hot...however for mine i did cut a hole in the bottom of the console to run the wires thru so that may be helping. pictures are in the jeep and radios thread
  7. im using the 771g and its been working great for me
  8. did u try channel 12? im wondering if i should rma mine or just leave it
  9. i noticed it changed when u cycle the power but it was limited to low on the meter i think mine was right at 5w, can u check channel 12 on yours and see if u can transmit on it, i can transmit on it and use high power, however the other 8-14 i cant transmit....
  10. as i have many years in the rc hobby i can not agree more, ive gotten tons of ccb off of amazon and have only found 1 brand that was up to the demands of hardcore racing and bashing. they where around for a few months and now there gone, however that battery is still killin it 4 years later and hundreds of cycles. i dont have any cool lab gadgets but i do have a very good lipo charger for the hobby that tells me alot of info. the scariest part to me is those 6 and 8 cell lipos that are ccb and the QC is horrible...i saw a 8 cell that was only taped instead of soldered one the connector, they used liquid tape on it....i mean thats 30 freakin volts and huge amounts of amps, good thing they ran a xt90 instead of the ec5 so i soldered it on and told them to be carefull with it....was so scary.. Lscott have you done any testing on the panasonic or samsung 18650 cells, at one point i was going to make me a few 2 cells for my fpv goggles, but i stopped flying when they went batstuff crazy with drone rules.
  11. i used a jackery 240 for my kg1000g now its running a motorola cdm1550ls. it has no issue running it and can last 2 days betweeen charges and the best part is there is no noise. its also not connected to the house power when i use the radio so in storms im not worried about it as much as i would be if it was on house power
  12. I grew up in southeast New Mexico, so smoking with mesquite was the norm. I remember walking in a 30ft square and in 5 mins or less having enough wood for whatever I was going to be cooking at that time, never had to store it since it was everywhere. id love to take you up on them seeds but I'm pretty sure they wouldn't do any good here in the Colorado winters. Extreme, would a metal roof rack about 2ft away effect that antenna to much, i put a ut-72 on my cousins blazer, and she would like to have a nmo mount so theres no cable out the door, but we need to keep it short since shes lifted to the sky.
  13. ive got a guy i talk to that has the nagoya 771c nmo and he gets great range, now we do live in a mountainous area so the repeaters are usually pretty high. that being said im using the nagoya mag mount that they recommend with the kg1000g and its a banger also. with mine we went wheeling this weekend and it held up great to the trees. two good choices in my book. how much u charge me to bring me some of them there wonder branches you be talking bout! I miss bbqing with raw mesquite logs instead of this chip bs im stuck with now......
  14. my bad its a talkaround ptt button The KG-905G supports Talk Around. If you're on a repeater channel, talkaround essentially provides an additional PTT button that bypasses the repeater, transmitting on the same frequency on which you would receive.
