    KD9LFZ, KD9POK and KM9G get out a whole herd of antennas and put them to the "will it blend" test. Take a peak and see what all the fun is about.

    C64 and VIC-20! I love the old gear and I'm working on getting some of them onto an old packet radio network in the area - now that I know how to reach it from here. Check out some of the prior uploads on my channel for some c64 videos. I'm currently building a brand new C64 motherboard, the #SixtyClone

    Very cool! I had one of those and started some of my early programming experience playing with one.

    Hey nice video Steve. I was glad to play along (but that doesn't even sound like me hihi) and it just shows: you never know what might happen when you answer a new call on the repeater.

    It's nice you've got your family in there too.

    Remember to turn off the radio when connecting and disconnecting antennas . .it sucks when you blow out the final on the radio .... it happens.;)

    .. and

    To disable Sleep Mode, first turn the unit Off and then press and hold the MFJ Mode button when reapplying power. Continue holding Mode until after the copyright message appears on the LCD screen, then release. Now you can click on the “Start” button
