I have been off the air for about 12 years for various reasons, but recently dusted off one
of my old radios and decided to fire it up. What can I say, I have caught the bug again.
(I used to have a P60 strumech tower with a Jaybeam TB3 tribander atop.)
Currently I am using the excellent G-whip end-fed antenna for the 20 mtr band, sloping
from the top of the house at a height of 4 meters bearing south, with the end approx five
feet off the ground - this gives an angle of approx 75 deg's, I orientate the end, East thru West.
The results with this antenna have been extremely good, which I shall record with the log book
I am using my trusty Yaesu FT 707 with 100 watts, I bought this new in 1983 which I operated in
Brazil for a short period as PY1ZCJ out of Rio De Janeiro, I also operated portable from my late friends
Beach House at 'Manguinhos' Near Vitoria, the now Silent key Patrick - PP1BG.who will be greatly missed.
I shall be considering dusting off my Trio TS 940s and Kenwood TL-922 in future, with the possibility
of aquiring a Clark pneumatic (pump-up) mast for a low profile, with which to mount my old Jaybeam
UPDATE: Dug my hole, (not for myself Hi) and have placed my order for a 12m Tennamast made in Scotland.
UPDATE: 09/10/13 Jaybeam TB3 renovated and mounted on Tennamast. Everything working well with good reports
