Igate upgrades

 Made some changes to APRS igate KL3RR-2 this summer:

  •  Radio: Baofeng UV3R to Yaesu FT-60r 
  •  TNC: Mobilinkd TNC2 to TNC3
  •  Antenna: Arrow J-Pole to Diamond X50A antenna 

The igate performance (stations & distance heard) immediately increased.  This was most notable when switching from the Baofeng to Yaesu radio.


Diamond X50A - bird approved.


Vertical X50A (VHF/UHF) and horizontal G5RV Jr. (HF)
