Portable Operating

Sometimes when one needs to get out of the shack and perhaps take a break from HF operating or DXing, nice to have portable gear. My Portable Operating gear currently consists of:

  • Yaesu FT2D Digital 2m/440 w/Comet SMA 24
  • Motorola MTS2000 Flashport Model III (33cm aka 900Mhz)

They both put out 5W. Between these two radios I got most of the active VHF/UHF covered.

If you are new to 900Mhz or have been only thinking about it, please check out my pages on 900Mhz (33cm) on this site. There is also more 900Mhz shack photos on my Ham Shack Pages.

If you need help programming either of these units, there are programming files in the Downloads section as well as more info on the 900Mhz Getting Started area of this website.

If you find something incorrect and/or have an update, I would really appreciate if you could let me know by contacting me. I like to keep things as up-to-date as possible. Thank you! - Lucas / W6AER
