In earlier posting I mentioned I ordered a Battery for my Yaesu FT-897 from an eBay store. The parcel still hadn’t arrived from 9th August so emailed HamStop.com to query this.
Got a very quick reply, and was posted via USPS on 10th August, but from my past dealings with USPS I know they aren’t the quickest. It would be nice to have for the upcoming Bank Holiday Weekend, although I am not holding my breath.
I have solved the earlier problem with my Solar Charger and the Battery I take out /p or /m. It seems the Jump-start leads have a charge protection, but I found a lead to charge from a car lighter socket I had buried in my shack and have modified so can now charge the pack.
Site Info update:- I have updated the site to enable me to run the lastest (alpha / beta) versions of WordPress and the K2 theme. If there are any problems please let me know so I can feedback, but so far all seems well.
