Back on VHF/UHF

Finally back on VHF and UHF bands, well 2m (144 – 145 MHz) and 70cm (430 to 440 MHz) with a Yaesu FT897D. The radio used to belong to a friend who sadly passed away earlier this year and was part of his estate sale. RIP Bob. 
The local radio club held an auction to raise funds and sell off his equipment, and this is my reminder of a true gent that walked amongst us. Today (2nd May 2022) I have been integrating it into the shack and setting it up to my laptop for use both at home and out portable. A couple of QSO’s on 2M FT8 have satisfied me that it is working and will be a great addition to the G1VDP shack and tool box.
