27meg to vhf

 So my 27meg is cooked and going to replace it. I hear some areas don’t cover 27meg anymore so see no point it just replacing the unit. Any recommendations on which vhf is ideal for a 5m quinny and who has the bast deals. 

Thanks Matt

 Yep, go VHF, Check Whitworths, they have a good range and fair prices.

 I’ve had a bit of a look online at what they have. Pretty good range. Wanting to be able to get everything in one place as aerial etc will need to be replaced. Will go have a look on the weekend at what they have.

 +1 for Whitworths. As Dale said, good range and competitive prices.

Will advise you on arial size & position of antenna.


Cheers & Stay safe

 I prefer VHF...just remember that to operate legally, you need a VHF licence.
