I just received word that Paul Opitz (UPMan) passed away Saturday from his long battle with cancer. He was surrounded by family when he passed.

That is all the news I have at this time.

To say he will be missed is an understatement.

You want to be sure to fuse AT the battery (both positive and negative leads), THEN power the switch etc.  I use 50A self-resetting circuit breakers.  This protects the line used to power your gear, not the radios (use the appropriate fuse AT each radio).

You want to use both leads for maximum noise reduction (the battery is a huge capacitor) and lower IR^2 losses (not returning through the vehicle body).  However in a new vehicle, which may measure alternator load, you want the negative at the chassis ground point so it can be included in the load analysis of the vehicle computer.

Re: Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone as well.  I am in Louden County, Tn until Saturday and had read that the TACN talkgroups in this area are supposed to be encrypted but there is quite a bit of activity in the clear.  Also, on the way down and back I stopped in Detroit and had some time to monitor the MPSCS TRS in Michigan.  I used to live there, and the MPSCS is one of my favorite systems to monitor, and I’ve always wanted to try it with the BCD436HP!
