Amateur Radio Convention Brings New and Familiar Faces:  
by N7XLR on July 24, 2018 Mail this to a friend!
I do not own a smart phone and never will. My cell phone is an old fashioned '90s flip phone that does nothing but make phone calls. I'm not even happy with the direction amateur radio is going. It is a nightmare to program new VHF and UHF radios. I would love to have an '80s version of these radios. My old Kenwood TH215 was so simple and easy to use. I'm in the process of replacing the internal battery in it now. It seems like amateur radio is no longer for amateurs. I have an Icom IC-718 HF radio, which cannot be worked on. But I also have a Yaesu FT-DX 560 that I completely rebuilt, and it works great. I love it's simplicity.
