I have been a radio amateur since 1988, I hold a full license, I have a Yaesu FT290R
transceiver, shown below I also have a Yaesu FT23R handheld that I use in the car,
I do have a hands free setup in the vehicle. I very rarely use it in the car these days.


Yaesu FT290R A Very nice 2m radio, with upper & lower sideband,
aerial setup, on a 15ft pole, with a rotator.

As you can see from the pictures above, I use a twin aerial system Vertical
and Horizontal these are switched using coaxial relays that are positioned in my loft,
and controlled with a switch by the radio.
