For Sale / Wanted / Barter / Wanted CW filter for Yaesu FT-817

Amateur Radio / Amateur satellite operation

So has mentioned in my other post about filters,I have a Yaesu FT-818 on it's way. I really just wanted another 817, but they are still selling for over 500.00 on the used market and a new 818 can be had for $569.00. Part of my decision of choosing the 818 is to be able to do portable satellite operation with either an Arrow or Elk yagi. What have your experiences been working satellites whether they were FM or SSB? I having been doing some research on Amsat to see which birds are active and learning to look up pass times based on my grid square. Let me know what you think.

It seems to be quite a challenge to find CW filters for the FT-817's. I have noticed that the price of filters in general have gone up quite a bit. I just ordered a new 818 and am trying to find a 300/500 filter. If anyone knows where I might find one,please give me a heads up. Thanks

Folks using antennas such as the Alpha Delta or Par End fed SWL slopers. Do you ground the antenna? I don't think I would buy one, but I'm thinking about rigging up a 9:1 balun and 45' of wire to try out. Thanks

Amateur Radio / HF activity is on the rise
« on: March 17, 2020, 0019 UTC »
Lots of activity the last couple of days on HF. Guessing it's a combination of good propagation and the fact that people are staying indoors.
