Re: HAM Radio

Would be neat to jump on one of the Atlanta repeaters @RayTL and have a chat! 73 and good DX, Alex, AK4AM Hi Alex, good to meet you; I’d be game for that. Is your contact info g...

Re: HAM Radio

Hey Deltahedge , I used the HamStudy app, it’s a great resource for the testing. I recommend coming up with a budget, because antennas, radios, wires, etc. are not cheap. Connect with your local club; mine has been a wealth of knowledge and has used equipment for sale or to borrow. A lot of folks st...

Re: HAM Radio

Haha HoosierLawnGnome - the Baofeng did me in as well! MarkV I can hit repeaters 10miles away on a simple hand held radio (ht) that runs 5watts. You can check out repeaterbook.com to see what’s close to you. I typically only use 10w on my main rig and hit all of my local repeaters within 10/20 miles...

Re: Idech Power Rotary Scissors / Landscape Blade (Seago International Discount Offer in OP)

Hey @Grassoholic , my 36V Makita seems to have plenty of power for the standard blade and works great. I usually only use the first power setting. I assume it’d handle the larger blade as well.

Re: Question for you power rotary scissor owners

I had something similar to this happen to me. I attached the PRS to my old Echo trimmer and it made this kind of jerking/clicking motion when the blades were at low speed. And it took the Echo a moment for it to start turning the blades as well. Once it got up to full speed I had no issues. I recent...

The folks at Seago reached out and asked if some of you would be willing to submit a short review of the Idech Power Rotary Scissors on their website. I think they just recently added the product review feature.

Re: Idech Power Rotary Scissors / Landscape Blade (Seago International Discount Offer in OP)

I finally bought a string trimmer extension for my Makita LXT 36V power head to put the landscaping blade on. It runs like a champ now, so much better than on my old Echo trimmer, no more clicking at low speeds. Loving the landscape blade more and more each use.
