I know this has been brought up by others but figure re-mentioning might inspire change eventually. The mount on the B24 is one of the most obtuse I’ve ever had to work with.
It’s a crude thing. Hose clamps to start, the rest of the mount is sloppy until you lock it down completely, resulting in repeated re-alignments after lock-down. It’s a mess, really.
Otherwise it isn’t a bad radio for the price. Installed a 2.5 mile link today with a pair (way beyond recommended distance, I know), and it is fully capable of saturating the capacity it says it has. An AF24 pair would perform better on this link but solar on both sides dictate otherwise.
