My History of VHF mobile FM I have had a wide variety of mobile radios for 2M, starting with an RCA CMC20 (all tubes but compact), then a Hammarlund Outercom, then a "made for Ham Radio", Regency HR2A, the Kenwood all mode TS700a, Icom IC2s (BULLETPROOF front end and SENSITIVE !) Finally, a Radioshack HTX242, very versatile rig. sitting in the shack but vehicle is wired up if I want to do some mobile operating. Seems like 2 Meters is going rapidly into Digital Voice modes, and that is where I get off the bandwagon !!!
