    TINY's simple lil setup.


    • A 2 radio setup with one homemade halfwave metal radial Dipole. I run a Cobra 29 LTD Chrome for the local coal truck drivers. And A Uniden Bearcat 980SSB for skip...The dipole is made out of an OS239 a 1-inch conduit PVC "T" 3/4 inch plugs and pipe than with 1/2 inch metal conduit running out of it..Works like a dream. I also have a 3 output switch that I run in reverse. instead of 1 radio with 3 antenna. I run it 2 radios 1 antenna. Oh, and an Astatic SWR & Power meter to keep an eye on things. I plan on having some major work done on the Cobra and a lil something extra done for the 980

    With your Uniden 980 it's best to keep it pretty much at the stock power levels. It would not be worth having it over tuned or mess with final upgrades. Since it is a nice clean sounding low powered radio it will match up well to many smaller amplifiers. That would be your best bet for say 100-250 watts.

    I'm actually going to key it down a couple watts. It keys right at 4 now some I'm going to dip it to about 1.5-2w
