Icom 756PRO3 Internal Keyer ilektranik 3 days, 8 hours ago
A quick scan of the manual indicates it is a basic keyer dots and dashes only. It doesn't look like it supports any type of iambic operation. It looks like you can make several adjustments to the weighting and several other characteristics.

VHF Magnetic Antennas KG5AEU 2 weeks, 6 days ago
You might be able to modify them to work on the VHF or UHF amateur ham bands depending on the type of antennas they are. An antenna analyzer would be very helpful.

Cell Phone Site and Repeater Site K7IHI 3 weeks, 6 days ago
As Martin said the bigger issues are site access and installation costs of the antenna, coax, hardware, grounding and AC power. Most cell sites are managed by site management companies many of which are not friendly to ham radio. Their job is to make money for the site owners and the monthly cost can be quite high for amateur operators. Security and access is not easy at most sites. It is mandatory that main and secondary methods of remote repeater control be implemented as access can sometimes take weeks. Lastly is the fact that ANY interference issues become the problem of the last guy on the tower.

RF Grounds, when a ground and when a Antenna? 1200bruce 3 weeks, 6 days ago
The length of your "ground" has more to do with it than what it goes through or what it is connected to.

Congratulations on passing the test! What comes now is a lifetime of learning the practical application.

Ham HT On Public Safety Bands K8AXE on 22/6/16
A radio that is used in the public safety bands requires Part 90 certification. Ham radios that are not Part 90 compliant cannot be used in the public safety bands. Part 90 radios can be used in the Ham bands.
