His firstling bull has majesty, and his horns are the horns of a wild ox; with them he shall push the unicorns, all of them, to the ends of the earth.

Yeah, this is actually FM,  AFSK 1200 baud Packet (APRS), the US frequency is 144.390 - you're picking it up on USB at 144.380 because that's actually the frequency of the suppressed carrier of the AM signal.
 
I have a question for the VHF Rovers out there:

What are you using for a mast for your antennas?  I'm looking for 1 1/4" mast materials to support a stack of loop antennas but I'm only seeing EMT Conduit in 10 foot lengths and no easy way to stick 2 of them together and Radio Shack 10 foot mast material that is swaged to stack - but it's Radio Shack and I'm not sure I can trust the stuff.  I keep hearing about 4 foot lengths of military surplus tent poles but I can't ever find anyone selling them.

I'm planning on running a drive-on mast anchor with tip-over to make assembly easier in January weather in Michigan. 

Any pointers?

How about Cyclone fence, chainlink fence post topper?   it's in 10FT sections and it made to fit like mast sections...

Just received my TM-D710a.  I think I have a good spot for the head unit on the dash, but I need advice on where to install the radio.

I guess the standard spot would be under the driver's seat; but I have a very adjustable seat and don't want to crush the radio if I lower the seat to make headroom (I'm 6'5" tall - headroom is important).  The passenger seat is not adjustable in height, but that means the power cord would be longer. 

Advice for mounting the radio is greatly appreciated.

My wife and I just ate dinner from the new Five Guys restaurant in Holland, MI.  It was some great bar burgers and the fries are VERY large when you order a large.  I watched them make some of the hotdogs as well, and I might have to try that next time.
