28MHz musings

I’ve been quite tempted by one of the Anytone AT5555 10m transceivers. Quite clearly its heritage is a CB radio, but there’s an appeal in the simplicity of it. A few watts of SSB on 28MHz can go a long way as we know by now, and FM can be fun at times. Partly I’d thought about having one for the car – as long as I could find a 10m mobile antenna that will fit under the barrier at the station! Reading around on the web, reviews are fairly favourable. Still haven’t quite convinced myself to push ‘buy’ on the website! Anyone reading this that’s tried one?Either way – the musings have convinced me to reroute the coax from the Butternut vertical to the shack (it was previously routed to the lounge…) so that I can listen on 28MHz a bit more on one of the rigs I’ve got around. If I get a chance this weekend I’ll work on that.
