2 April 2012, Bill Butler, N2BGR, of Staten Island, provided the
NYC-ARECS team with an overview and demonstration of an Alinco
VHF/UHF portable "Go Kit" at the April 2012 team meeting.
Bill's kit is self-sufficient with a battery inside, but also
is external power adaptable via Anderson Powerpole Connectors.
The radio works seamlessly with APRS via external GPS. To reduce
heat, it is equipped with a forced-air fan. The radio can work
with headphones, an external speaker, or both at the same time.
Screw in a mag mount antenna to the top of the box then put this
radio in a vehicle and it becomes a 45 watt powerful mobile radio
