Tonight was a successful ham radio night….the 880 I bought from fellow ham WC9V was installed without incident in my daily driver jeep yj. I’m using a 1/2 wave antenna mounted on the spare tire rack. Finding a suitable antenna mounting position on a jeep is no easy task. My usual plan of drilling a hole and installing an nmo mount was to going to work. It’s going to be nice to be back on DSTAR and the local repeaters during my commute!
