Did you know the Yaesu FTM400XDR has the function of a crossband repeater. I didn't see it in any of the books, but found it by accident. However I found that others were aware of this feature and have already made videos around it.
I ordered this little jewel from Amazon Sunday and it came in today. "Jewel" would have been hyperlinked to Amazon where there was an 80A DPDT Contactor with a 110V coil, but apparently I bought the last one and they doen't want to sell anymore. I currently have the commons hooked to my radio power distribution and NC to the battery and NO to my power supply. So when the grid goes down it will switch to the monster AGM I have on the floor. No idea how long it will last as it came out of one of TCU's electric buses and was deemed bad by service. Voltage is low on it but not far off from normal float voltage, but it is solid and on an invertor will power my 65" flat screen for hours. There's also a 1000VA power backup on the right of that computer. If you haven't seen the Server Wall you'll understand why I won't loose phones or LAN infrustructure. I also won't loose internet until Spectrums UPS fails and it usually always fails before mine. I'd gladly sell them some real he-man batteries too. So now the HRI-200, FTM100D will both have power and internet until Spectrum fails. Then they'll still be on with no Wires-X connection.
