International Friendship Through Amateur Radio

 

Born in 1961 came into amateur radio like most amateurs through short wave listening, passed the RAE and morse tests in 1983 licensed in 1984, for the early part of my amateur years i was completly sold on CW, the preferred mode which still stands today. like most amateurs the station changes the station changes over the years and from time to time so does the transceivers, currently using the Yaesu FT817ND which is used exclusively on the HF bands, this is a superb little radio and recommend to anybody, but does have its limitations on the lower frequencies. HF antennas used are the MOSLEY PRO 57B which is a 7element beam for 14mhz to 28mhz on a 21metre tower, and for the lower bands a full wave inverted vee dipole cut for 7mhz and feed with open wire feeder.

As with most radio euthusiasts we all had many transceivers over the years here is my list starting with my very first radio

FT102 FT757GX FT980 TS830S TS930S TS940S IC751A JST135 FT1000D FT1000M V FT897D TENTEC OMNI VI PLUS FT817ND.

Every amateur tries various antennas over the years here are mine.

First antenna.

T2FD folded dipole, delta loops, various dipoles, inverted L, beam.

Time is spent only on the HF bands dont have any antennas for VHF, been operating QRP for several years now find it hard going at times, but has its rewards when i get DXcontact
