Fixed GTX kinda

Did a partial clone to the GTX that had been modified to take 16 channels from the stock code plug of my other GTX that was ham capable and it can now be read from my version of software. I don't have the extra channels but at least I can now change the frequencies and tones.

900 MHz Antenna

This one is quite a bit lower than the Quagi that is at 40 feet but should allow for more omni direction. Not sure on the model name or number at the moment but will post that soon. I have three more of these 7 footers and 4, 10 footers but those are quite a bit heavier.

EF Johnson Viking 242-9675

Anyone know anything about this radio? I would like to know where to find the manual and programing software and is it able to go into the Amateur 900 MHz band.
