You too can have KOA "blowtorch" power IN YOUR HANDS! Ignore that tingle when you press the PTT. It's perfectly normal.

Only 9999KM on 12KW? I guess it's true that those rubber-duck antennas just don't perform. Run time on a 99AH battery ain't gonna be all that great though.

Yeah, but 1/4 the way around the world on UHF? Imagine being able to hit every repeater in the US from your recliner!

Not only that, but many simultaneously! There's only so many pairs, and so many CTCSS tones - gotta be some duplication. 😀
