G0TSM antennas - 2016

 

My Home Station consists of.....

Yaesu FTDX5000MP+Yaesu Quadra Amplifier+Yamaha CM500 headset + UR6QW EQ/Compressor.

LP-Pan + Xonar U7 + NaP3

10/6M Dual band Yagi 5ele/5ele (homebrew)

12/15/17/20M Broadband Hexbeam (homebrew)

30M half size rotary dipole

40M Dipoles 12M high (E/W & N/S)

40M vertical

60M Dipole at 12M high

80M Inverted L

40/80M Windom @17M (also used as a 160M L)

80/160M Rx antenna is a Wellbrook loop with an MFJ1025 noise canceller

 

My FTDX5000 audio settings used with the Yamaha CM500 headset and UR6QW EQ/Comp:

On FTDX5000:

PROC = ON

MIC GAIN = 26

PROC = 15 or 16

Menu #104 = 200-2800

Menu #162 = 0 (PE1 OFF)

Menu #165 = 0 (PE2 OFF)

Menu #167 = 3000

Menu #168 = 3

Menu #169 = 1

On UR6QW EQ (Connected to rear MIC IN):

500Hz   -6dB

250Hz  -6dB

500Hz  -3dB

1KHz   0dB

3KHz  +6dB

COMP = 9 O'clock

MIC = 9 O'clock

OUT = 12 O'Clock (50%)

Note: Adjust the UR6QW OUTPUT so the maximum COMP indicated on the FTDX5000 is <= 5dB.

With a PROC setting on the FTDX5000 of less than 10 it is possible to overdrive the DVK input and the DVK playback will sound distorted. A PROC setting of 15 or 16 and a COMP indication of 5dB or less will not overdrive the DVK.

 

Shack - Jan 2013

The top three antenna switches are to allow the antennas to be routed to the 2nd RX on the FTDX5K bypassing the amplifier.

What a mess! But all hidden away under the desk. the cable supports are 'guttering brackets'

View from the shack window. What a beautiful sight! (The antenna, not the snow!)

Another view of shack.
