The Wait is over…

Finally received the Yaesu FT-817ND and the Z817 autotuner. Really small rig! I am really impressed with the size and weight. I installed a high capacity NiMH battery pack and am starting to condition it per W4RT’s instructions. No contacts yet with it but did start working on the antennas now that I am on Christmas/New Years vacation. My goal is to pack the whole system in a portable case for field work.
