BIG changes (Sept 2014) over the summer of 2014 - a completely new array - two phased four squares for 80m and two phased four squares for 40m - more infomation to follow -

 90 foot free standing Titanex vertical for 160m and a Optibeam OBW 10-5 for HF bands. For local contacts I use a 264foot Doublet at 60 feet.

I have traded in new and used ham gear for some 52 years and trade under the banner of RCQ Communications Limited from my warehouse near Kings Lynn - both old and new equipment is catered for and I advertise in RadCom, Practical Wireless and RAOTA - I am also have an Agency with ML&S and can supply most equipment to the UK mainland - next day delivery.

I have been licenced for 52 years - thanks for looking me up on QRZ                   K3 & P3 with K3/0 Remote  .

160 m top loading 8 wires 19 feet long

160m top loaded vertical - showing the 8 toploading wires each 19 feet long

This is the main 160m mast which also holds up the 8 elements spaces at 45 degrees for the 80m array.

Thats me winding up the second vertical for 160m - Titanex free standing 90 foot - tuned against 75 quarter wave radials

80m 8 element phasing box together with the 160/80 matching networks - now completed and all working!

The phasing bang on 107 degrees and 0.92 current ratio.

Tony G3LNP say's connect 2 idential lines from the front and rear elements - make one of the lines 107 degrees longer than the other - then set the scope amplitude to a ratio of 1 and 0.92 and simply tune the phasing capacitor for as close as you can get - the phase angle and current were calculated for my location and system using Eznec.

This is the home brew 8 element controler which also includes 2 Netiom boards and is connected to my Internet router

- I have full control of the whole station remotely from anywhere - I have operated remotely from my car using an I phone 5mobile phone through the UK mobile phone network - using Logmein Ignition for the vision and Skype for the sound - from laptops I use IP Sound instead of Skype.
