I'm really digging the "submersible" part: on the bike, in the rain...

An odd rating... 30min @ 3 ft. But still...That single feature caused me to pull the trigger right away.

Are you considering mounting your new VX-7R on the gelandestrasse ?

That VX-7R is so perfect for the bike. KTM and BMW should offer it as a factory option.

I am not sure about a "hard" mount on the GS. The would be a lot of vibrations with a handlebar mount (or similar). But at least I can stash the radio in a jacket pocket and not worry about it.

oh, and the dual monitoring is awesome. It came in real handy last night during a little hamsexy moment.

Aaron and I will have all the cables needed to easily program the radios. and also play with the virtual jumpers.

those yaesu's are cool. i was just looking at the specs online and i didn't realize it has 6 meter? what's up with that? wouldn't you need like a 14' antenna on the 6m band, especially with only 1 watt?

The 6m portion of the antenna that came with the radio isnt' that long.
But regardless, at 5w, I don't think it'll matter much.
