|SCR 536 "Handie Talkie"|
|SCR 300 "Walkie Talkie"|
Now, many hams get by with just one or more HTs; I know several who have been doing this much longer than I and that's all they have.
(Not criticizing: While I have a mobile unit, I haven't installed it in a car yet; nor have I set up a "fixed" station in the house--yet.)
Anyway, in the course of a discussion* on battery charging, maintenance, life cycles, etc, on the Yaesu FT-60 Yahoo! group, a post corrected the misconception that Nickle Metal Hydride (NiMH) batteries do not "develop and hold a memory" like Nickle Cadmium (NiCad) batteries do, and posted a link to the Battery University website.
Handy info there, like I said, whether you think the pun in the title of this post was horrid or somewhat clever--or just obscure.
****I could easily have said "yet another discussion", as, if we banned battery discussions, I am sure that almost all of the email groups dedicated to handheld radios would dry up and blow away.
