I am excited with all the late use of 1.2ghz and want to get involved.
I have an FT-847, which doesn't have a 1.2ghz option. So what are
Here were my thoughts....
1) Add a 910 for 1.2ghz - expensive
2) Utilize my TS-2000 (currently HF) for 1.2ghz by adding UT-20 - not
sure how hard the add-on is to do
3) Buy another radio (?????) for 1.2ghz use
4) Is there some way to use the FT-847?
If there is references out there to this, Google did not do me well,
please send links and pointers.
Thanks and hopefully I'll be on 1.2ghz soon. I have an antenna and 50ft
of inch and a quarter to the shack on the Sat rotator, but just never
hooked it too anything.
