Cross-band Repeat

I’ve purchased a Kenwood TM-V71A to replace my Yaesu FT-2900R, which now gives me cross-band repeat capability. For now, it and the antenna are upstairs in the office, but I’ve got a Browning BR-180 antenna and Browning BR-311 lip mount coming for the car, so now I need to decide whether to put the Yaesu or the Kenwood back in the car. I’ve really enjoyed being able to wander around the house with my HT and still be able to hit my preferred repeater by using cross-band repeat, but I’d like to also have 70cm and >5W available to me in the car.

Special thanks to Mark KF5VQY for helping me get the cross-band repeat sorted out last night! Also hat tip to David AF5DN‘s video instructions.
