I was licensed in September 1974 whilst still at school and have operated CW 1.8 – 28 MHz ever since. Continue to use a TS830s together with a homebrew linear or Heathkit amplifier, when needed. Antennas include dipoles for 1.8MHz, 3.5 MHz, 7MHz, 10.1MHz, 18MHz and 24MHz together with a 3 ele beam for 14/21/28MHz. The dipole for 18/24MHz is made from a converted TA33jnr driven element. Latest addition is a 30m delta loop beaming N/S.

 

Photo on the left below shows mast with 3 ele HF beam on top and 30m delta loop (top fed). The mast also supports a 30m/40m dipole and the ends of the 80m and 160m dipoles. Photo on the right shows the 4:1 home made balun I use to feed the 30m loop. This is made from a 10cm piece of PVC pipe, 60mm in diamater. Twin high-quality speaker cable (8 turns) is used for the coil. The total length of the loop was reduced by trial and error in order to resonate on 10.105MHz due to the proximity of the conifers at the end of the garden and feed height. I experimented with side and top feeding. Settled for feeding from the top of the delta loop - works best for me at this location.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am the Headteacher of a large secondary school in St. Albans and have worked in education since graduating from University. Work commitments mean I am usually active early mornings each day but not as much in the evening. Enjoy working DX, participating in contests and holding longer QSOs. I am a member of the Verulam Amateur Radio Club, CDXC and FOC. Currently working on DXCC, slowly!

St. Albans is a wonderful city within easy reach of central London. The Cathedral is impressive, and there are numerous restaurants and pubs to enjoy. It is worth a visit if you are ever in the area.

Logs are all electronic and I upload to LoTW on a regular basis. Will QSL as requested via buro or direct.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I also enjoy watching all forms of sport and continue to play Rugby for Old Albanian Rugby Club.

Thanks for reading this and hope it is as a result of a QSO.

73.

 

Alan
