RATED Number 1 The Best 6m FM Radio Ever Made Azden PCS-7500H
I've had the Azden since sometime in the early 1990's, operating it as a fixed station rig. The Azden PCS-7500H is a 6m FM transceiver the greatest 6 meter FM radio ever maded with a whopping price of $530.00 usd in the 1990's, it has 20 memories (10 in each memory 'bank'). It has a very odd method of programming CTCSS tones, requiring the use of a code cross reference list from the owner's manual each time, and one must set the rx & tx tones separately (PCS-5000 2M works the same way) Regular MFJ microphone will work fine if not better than the push button microphone and you can do all the programing with the front panel buttons on the Azden, you don't need the push button microphone to program the radio. It produces 5 watts on low transmit 50 watts on high With a built in fan thats very quite and only comes on when the unit heats up, with a outstanding receiver.
Worlds best 6 Meter repeater 3/4 wave Rehad J-Pole antenna at 53.03 FM Mhz Made Out Of Crutches!
Building My J-Pole started when I spotted some crutches right then and there the Rehad J-POLE was borned. I wasn't going to spend another 200 usd for a 6 Meter ground plane that I wasn't happy with [Diamond].. I wasn't going to spend one penny for this antenna.. In the past building any kind of 6M antenna I never had any luck doing so.. This one went smooth no problems and it loaded up 1:1 at 53.03 FM 6M repeater band..Its tall 14' plus but easy to handle and you can put it anywhere.. You have to be 6' away from any objects.. Diagrams to build.. Do a search for 6m J-Poles.. You will find all kinds.. Don't bother with the five turn coils on your co-ax that is nothing but asking for pure trouble, connect your 50 ohm co-ax directly to the J-Pole..
