My current rig is a Yaesu 857D driving a fan dipole for HF hung outside at about 25 feet, a 1/4 wave ground plane for VHF/repeater work in the attic of my single story ranch, and my home brew vertical. My ground mounted vertical has been in operation for a while now and seems to be a nice compliment to my dipole, especially when trying to work DX.
I'm currently making contacts in several modes, CW, SSB and digital. I have completed my "three way" WAS - which is just as good as a Triple Play, and I have 3 certificates to show for it.
My last project was the TriBander from QRPKits, designed by KD1JV. My kit is for 20M, 30M and 40M. It's completed and I'm in the process of assembling a 'go kit' where I'll be using it for some lunch time QSO's. My initial EFHW antenna was not very practical for QRP contacts, so I'm developing dipole I'm hoping will better serve. It's ready to go, but the weather has curtailed any activities for this for a while.
Right now, I'm looking to constructing a transceiver as something to do over the winter months. I've got lots of reading to do.
