Just purchased a LNBF from KE4EST , struck me as a ham call ? . I guess there is a reason I joined this, it so happens I am a ham , KD8FHC and I am a extra Class have been since 2007.
Those Baofengs are a real price bargain. I have the UV-B5 and an Etekcity (same company) UV-5RA, both with Nagoya NA-701 antennas. It's amazing how well made they are, especially for the price. I keep one in my 4Runner and one in the wife's Santa Fe.WB5YYM, Extra since forever. Not active much anymore, but did spend 30 bucks last year on a Baofeng UV5R and built a couple yagi's for 2m and 440 to work Saudisat 1c which led to the FTA satellite hobby.
RT if you know Rick Smedberg he is in our 78 repeater club , few years back I put a antenna on the ludington repeater , and wondered if you might be related to Earl Lasarge on us -31 up by Onekama ?N8BMH here in Ludington. Great to read another satellite person that is not a zillion miles away from me.
