Re: Radio help

Hi Texlonewolf, I use the Mc Kinley as a base radio with the Patriot 12' and D-104 M6b mic. Once in awhile that little RM KL 203-P is connected as well. Is a very good working little radio that is connected to a Pyramid PS7KX. 73 and good luck with your rig. Mike [ Post made via Linux Laptop ] http:...
