My New Toy!

December 7, 2012 · Posted in Radio · 2 Comments 

For our anniversary this year we decided to get each other a nice gift, it is our 10 year after all. Laurie got me this.


Yes, that is a standard size paper clip, not one of those huge ones. Dual band chinese radio, a baufeng uv-3r+. Besides being able to easily fit in my shirt pocket it has a built in vox. I haven’t tested it yet, but if it works this will likely be a great little digital mode radio to hook up to my android phone. As soon as I figure out the pinouts for the speaker mike on the radio and phone I will build a cable and APRS here I come!

Oh, Laurie got a silhouette cameo, a computerized paper/vinyl/fabric cutter. I know we are a couple weeks early on the gifts, but what can I say. Amazon was quick, and we are impatient.
