Hello and welcome to DL1PPA @ QRZ.com!

I´m always on the run - and working the 20m band from downtown, the highway, out of tunnels..... ok, joking! But with this rather short antenna I worked from the mobile VK2, VE, JA....
I strongly recommend this COMET monoband antenna, it works phantastic! TRX is an old ICOM IC706MKII, tuned.

mobile station - old, but mine! :-)

At home I am working on HF with a YAESU FT-450. A very compact, absolutely good equipped, compact radio. The original microphone is replaced by an old BAYER DYNAMIC studio microphone - an excellent choice with an stage microphone holder, ´cause I´m using the pretty good working VOX-functionality of the FT-450: best R-reports and free hands all the time!

For 2m & 70cm I got an "retiered" KENWOOD TM 741 tribander with doubled 2m and 70cm.

.....and last but not least the OM himself :-)



As I got the great pleasure to have a separate cottage for my ham radio activities, my wonderfull wife Ruth "allowed" me to "rise up" an sufficient antenna in the geographical middle of our property. I´m the proud owner of the rare HF-multiband vertical MFJ-1798. So I aquired some U-Tubes and other steel parts from the scrapyard and welded a wall mounting holder for the mount of the antenna to the side wall of the cottage - you can see this on the following pictures:

*** UPDATE 2016: A very bad storm killed my MFJ-Antenna. Now from I got the great HighGain AV680 -  much more performance than the MFJ-1798! ***

The new HighGain AV680 antenna is working much better - my very deep thank to my very best friend Gerd helping to tune the antenna with his equipment - and is an good choice for DXing: 59 in 3 days in PJ5 (Saba Islands) TS2 (Tunesia), W2 (USA), VE3 (Canada), VK5 (Australia), ZL (New Zealand), B7 (China), P4 (Aruba), 9K (Kuwait), CE4 (Chile), 3XY (Guinea), 4X (Israel) and so on..

Wanna have a look on my QSL-card? Here it is!
