This radio was purchased November 27th 2021. I wanted a decent dual band radio that I can use for both mobile and as a base unit. I live in a HOA restricted area so my setup needs to be minimal and unobtrusive.
I'm running a Tram 1477-B dual band antenna on a tripod. So this setup is not a permanent solution but more a means to an end to keep myself out of trouble with HOA. I could put the antenna in my attic however, I'd have to run coax and I am not comfortable doing that here because we don't plan to live in this house much longer.

The Tram 1477-B antenna is mounted on a heavy duty photo studio tripod. It came with everything needed to attach it to the tripod. I can raise it up to 15 feet if I wish. It works perfectly for my situation with the HOA. When I want to work the repeaters I can just take it outside and deploy it.
