  1. Re: What Happens Differently at 8 MPH and Below on a WK2?

    No, itís a Kenwood TM-D710G dual band mobile.
  2. Re: What Happens Differently at 8 MPH and Below on a WK2?

    Sometimes, and it may be worth a try, but usually shields added after the fact leak a lot of signal, or become another radiator, unless it can be done nearly completely with seams sealed with metal...
  3. Re: What Happens Differently at 8 MPH and Below on a WK2?

    The back up lights are on the same circuit so I canít remove the fuse permanently and wouldnít feel it safe to do even temporarily. Besides, I use the backup camera all the time and sometimes the...
  4. Re: What Happens Differently at 8 MPH and Below on a WK2?

    I got a major clue from jeepforum.com. There are front parking sensors in some markets so the controller turns them all on at low speed even if only the rear are present as they are on my car. So I...
  5. Re: What Happens Differently at 8 MPH and Below on a WK2?

    Thanks, fuse pulls are a good idea, may have to do that.

    I tried walking around with an HT, but itís pretty strong everywhere, not a lot to go on. Oddly the highest of it was at the rear view...
  6. What Happens Differently at 8 MPH and Below on a WK2?

    Iím trying to locate the source of strong radio interference from my 2014 GC to the installed ham radio on 147.27MHz, which happens to be a useful repeater frequency in my area.

    It only occurs...

    Re: Forum "New Member" stats

    The problem, as stated by Jim, is that too few new members get involved. So, why not ask them? Take all the new members from the last few years and send them a short email or message. It could ask,...
  9. Re: Rules change - Four Spare Tires section - to be removed

    I have no objection to removing the spare tire mechanism; whatever works, is reasonably objective, and is easy to administer is fine.

    I agree that no wheeling for two years is probably a good...

    Re: Everyone was stuck on Switzerland today

    Shane, if youíre still looking for pac boots check with farm and ranch stores like Murdochís in Longmont or Tractor Supply. They usually have them. (Though it is getting a bit late in the season.)....
  11. Re: Electric vehicles - general thoughts / comments / advances

    I agree fleets are a great application for EVs in cities and dense suburbs, especially for delivery with a lot of idling time, since an EV uses almost no power unless under way.

    Amazon has a...

    Re: Rivian R1T

    Thatís my assumption as well. My ICE vehicles should easily last long enough for the prices of decent range EVs to come down because of competition and volume, hopefully by 2026 - 2030. ( And Iím...

    Re: The Worlds first *REAL* Electric Truck!

    Wow, that is a wonderful machine! The EVs are making progress faster than I thought they would, but at this point still very expensive. This truck is around $70K.

    How to Remove Brown Pinstripe from a Branch?

    I finally got my white GC washed and found a brown pinstripe about a foot long from a recent trail. At first I thought it was sap but neither WD40 nor naphtha did much. I can feel that the clear coat...

    JScan OBD2 Scanner/Reader App

    I just tried the JScan app on my iPhone coupled with an iCar Pro OBD2 Bluetooth interface and it worked really well for my 2014 Jeep GC. The app was $21 for one vehicle and the iCar unit was $32.

    I looked it up and tempered glass breaks somewhere around 20,000 PSI. Not much force is required on a hard, sharp point to get to that value, which is how those little window breaking tools work. For...

    Re: FR4x4 default radio channels - what shall we use?

    The "privacy" code will do that. But it will also prevent you from knowing if you are missing a transmission when the other group transmits simultaneously. You won't hear anything at all, whereas...

    Re: FR4x4 default radio channels - what shall we use?

    The privacy code tones are sub-audible. You donít hear them because they are below the radio audio amplifier frequency response. But the radio control circuitry hears them and opens the squelch.
