Ham Member Lookups: 11526

 

 

Besides Ham Radio I enjoy being a Freemason,currently a member of St.Dunstan's Lodge (7973) which meets in Glastonbury,Somerset.Still getting an adrenilin rush whilst riding my Honda Blackbird around the countryside.Was back in VU land yet again this year (2016) and managed to work VP8STI prior to going,and back in time to work VP8SGI,failed to work K5P (bugger),didn't even hear them,which still means I have 3 to go.

 

 

Me along side U-995 in Laboe ,Germany. (26th June 2013)

........................................................................................................................................................................

Equipment consists of :-

Tower No1 40ft free standing,also guyed as an extra precaution.

Tower No2 is a 60ft Strumech HD mounted on a trailer.

Below is the donor trailer as it arrived at my QTH.

60ft HD tower now mounted,some substantial modifacations to trailer though well worth

the time and effort.Both original winches as seen in picture have been replaced,the luffing

is still hand operated though a beast of a winch which makes it easier.The raising/lowering

winch is a brand new Goodwinch and really does the business,so much so I may even go

electric with the luffing.

Getting closer to going out.

Going out for the first time.

Everything went well,though high winds meant I didn't take it to the max.

 

Elecraft K3 with Panadaptor.
