VX-7RB & MH-73A4B on order

I had been searching around on various sites checking prices and shipping costs and times. And, with this weekend being the planned date of the Cabin Fever Bike Run....I decided that Associated Radio would be the place to try order from...the that slim hope that UPS ground would get it from Overland Park, KS to Manhattan, KS in one day.

Unfortunately, before noon I got a call from them saying they were out of stock, and it wouldn't be until sometime next week before they would ship. At first, I thought I could live with this. But, in chatting with a friend...and how I could get it somewhere else with more certainity (though not in time for the Bike Run). And, possibly a few dollars less (about $14). I decided to call and cancel the order with Associated Radio, and get radio and speaker mike wander over to me from Denver, CO. I did consider getting the SU-1, but didn't think of it fast enough.

Meanwhile, the Bike Run has been postponed due to weather. So, guess I will have new HT to use at the event.

Hopefully the 5W on standard battery pack vs the 2W of my current HT will make enough difference. &#59;D

I plan to order other bits the VX-7R....those might be around before the new date of the Bike Run. Though they aren't really necessary....well, the extra (and higher capacity) battery pack might be a nice thing to have. Though I'll probably have use of somebody's mobile for the main part of the activity.

Though it does answer the question on whether I'll have new HT before or after my first vacation of 2009. (before :P)

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
