As a result of our recent move to Kirkland, WA, we’ve been able to set up our club station, N7IH, with new transceivers, a new tower and new antennas. It’s been a blast to specify what’s needed and then make it happen.
In an aside, I’m afraid that it is often true that the “cobbler’s children have no shoes” meaning that the cobbler can’t find the time to make his children’s shoes. That can happen to any organization, like Icom, that is so focused on working with customers and delivering fantastic products that it doesn’t take the time to enjoy its own products. In this case, amateur radio equipment.
