Some ready-made Anderson connectors and LiFePO4 battery.

Did modification of the FT-857D today.

I did move the 0-ohm SMD resistors where needed.

Also a TCXO-9 unit is installed.
Works great!

Some snow.. and -6 degrees

So here we go.
Weather is very nice - cold, no wind and conds are great on HF(40M)

W3DZZ +5 - working VY FB on 40m and 80m and the other bands also.. 

HF beam working great even with snow on it

Snow on EME array - makes it shift 3MHz down - so It cannot be used before rain sets in...

 Looking for an used Acom A1000 now... :-)
