QSL image for GD4RGR

ex Merchant Navy Radio Officer 1969 - 1993 and Radio ham since 1982. Generally on SSB and CW. I have two set ups, the primary one is a KenwoodTS480SAT for base station use only and a secondary Kenwood TS50S. Wire antennas are home made , one a half wave wire dipole cut for 80m and another cut for 40m and set as inverted V. Centre of both wires at about 12 ft above ground giving good 'NVIS' propogation. I also have a Diamond Vertical 'BB7V' set at top of 10 ft pole.This gives good DX on all bands 1.8 to 30 Mhz.

I have an 'Expert 1K-FA' linear amp which gives 1KW on full power for use on the wires but can be switched to the vertical using half power and 5W drive from the TS480SAT only. This gives about 200W pep into the vertical which is rated at only 250W pep. The TS50 can be used with the amp but is not connected at this time; it is set at 100W and used for CW working on either the wires or vertical antennas. A Kenwood KT100 auto tuner is used with the TS50 whereas the linear amp has its own built in antenna tuner for the TS480.
