[19:56] <edmoore> chaps, if you want a good first hab radio (the famous ft-790) then now could be a good time http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Yaesu-FT-790R-70cm-all-mode-transceiver-/130391270377?cmd=ViewItem&pt=UK_ConsumerElectronics_SpecialistRadioEquipment_SM&hash=item1e5bece3e9#ht_500wt_924
[19:56] <edmoore> i know the seller and can vouch for him
[19:57] <jcoxon> oooo nice radio :-p
[20:04] <G8TMV> Yup, they are nice rigs, only 1W output but there used to be a matching linear if I remember correctly
[20:04] <edmoore> i thought it was 5W?
[20:05] <jcoxon> just 1W
[20:05] <G8TMV> no, just 1W
[20:05] <edmoore> no wonder i couldn't hear fergus that time.
[20:05] LazyLeopard (~irc-clien@chocky.demon.co.uk) joined #highaltitude.
[20:06] <G8TMV> Also - and the only downside - there is only the one antenna socket (the BNC on the front) this is a pain because it means the feed is always at least a bit in the way and also at UHF a BNC is a bit lossey
[20:06] <jcoxon> yeah
[20:06] <jcoxon> we usually recommend 790r as a starter HAB radio
[20:07] <jcoxon> due to its good sensitivity
[20:07] <edmoore> good forsliding into the glove compartment though :)
[20:07] <G8TMV> I've got an 817 and like it
[20:07] Action: jcoxon has an 817 and 790r
[20:07] <edmoore> most of the original 790ers have graduated to the 817
[20:07] <jcoxon> yeah
[20:08] <edmoore> we now lend our 790 out to people, as does jcoxon i beleive
[20:08] <G8TMV> well I'm an active HAM as well as a HAB follower
[20:08] <edmoore> I have my icom IC-7000 and very happy with it I am too :)

[20:10] <jcoxon> its very quiet in london (apart from the noise of course)
