The issue has been fixed.  The seller left the radio programmed before selling it, so it was in the WIRES-X mode, a mode I'm not familiar with since I've been off the air for several years due to CC&R's.  Holding down two specific buttons while turning the radio on cleared the issue and set it back to normal operations.  Own KG7OXU many apologies.

Good to hear that you got it going. I think that a factory reset is a good idea on a 'new' to you radio.
It's a fresh start, can manipulate the settings to your own individual preferences.

The used FM mobiles I've looked at didn't offer a significant cost savings over new.  The higher priced HF gear might offer a worthwhile savings.

I too had a good time on the contest this past weekend. I was able to get on Friday night for several hours and worked 7 or 8 new ones. I'm up to 45 or 46 countries on my way-too-short-for-160 100 foot dipole  Cool

The better brands of black UV resistant tywraps will last a long time.  You can make them last even longer by covering them with a couple of wraps of scotch 33 black tape.  It takes several years for the tape to give up and expose the tywraps to sunlight.  The typical white tywrap will give up in about 2 years around here.  Maybe less in a really sunny environment.  I have never used any of the SS ones but they sound like they would be great..

Sorry to bump an old thread, but I'm curious to see what N7GCO did. I have a 2015 Odyssey, and am trying to figure out how to route an antenna cable with minimal invasion.

I would go outside of passenger compartment and under car to route to rear as it would likely be easier than removing molding to get under carpeting.

A magnetic loop behaves in a similar manner to a dipole, when horizontal it needs to be quite high.

The big problem with them is the need to retune them every few KHz.

It was certainly very good on 2/19/2017 from 000Z until late, in the ARRL DC CW Contest. Worked more entities in it than in any other contest; some stations got over 60 entities.  Some new ones for me were included, but unfortunately 5J0NA did not show on that band...

BTW, is anyone working VP6EU on 160M yet??

I'd suspect Screen mod would be the best choice, unless you're talking about using one complete chassis and converting it to a modulator.   The Modulator Iron is a pretty big chunk, as you see in the pic, and don't think it'd fit on the back apron in place of just the crystal and tuning eye.  

I built the three tube Hi-Z preamp for my TCS, using the space that once was the crystal deck.

Pony up the $30 + shipping and buy a cable.

One this we are in complete agreement.

The propagation gods have not been kind to me these last few days. Propagation was definitely better earlier in their activation but the last couple of days.. nada.

More and more tempting to get a tower & beam up.  Cool

I'll dig out my delta loop most likely and toss that thing up in the next day or so. I was going to toss it up over the weekend but had too much going on. May take a day or so off this week. 60+ degree sunny days expected. Can't handle work on a day like that  Cool
