I really wish I had gone simpler on my first HT. The programming is pretty intense for a rookie. If I buy a programming cable & driver, am I correct in my assumption that I can use any of the down-loadable programs & do all that through my PC? Is that any easier than using the keyboard on the FT-60R? Assuming all that works, can I clone all of that info to my 8800R? I am having a hard time deleting all of the memory duplications for some reason. I follow the book instructions, and it will delete the first try, but after that it refuses to delete another. As for the performance, I upgraded to a Diamond rubber duck and that was wasted money. I can hit the 2 closet repeaters near me, but that's it. If I hook it up via splitter to my Comet 790A, it is outstanding. I was wondering if I bought on of those small Chinese single magnet mounts and put on top of my filing cabinet if that would work as well for indoors? I could also use it on my 2nd story deck m placing it on top of my huge SS grill. I'm open to suggestions on indoor antennas. I thought of buying another Comet for my deck and using a single magnet on the grill, since I know it works great. I hate spending another $90 if the $10 Chinese antenna will work since it's a part time rig. I thought of just getting the magnet mount and taking the Comet off my truck, but I don't think all that removing and attaching will wear it out soon. Thanks for all the help folks.
