Due to unfavorable housebuilding position, most of my activity is made in portable cond. so MY CAR IS MY USUAL SHACK, using a car homebrew top-loaded antenna set. On 40/80m my antenna is a simple wire chucked from car roof to trees, using antenna tuner CG3000.. . . . .In this way it's not easy to work DX , but I can't do anything more & else. Of course the largest part of DX-peditions are gone lost, but a time to time the miracle happens and it's always a great pleasure to hole the pileup by car using less than 100W and a whip. IC-740 is my rig (aged like me ).... in spite of years and hard-jobbing it's still working great HI.
my score in january 2014 (not enough to be proud but hard to reach in these so poor cond.):
In CW I use a mobile ham-belted CW key or an home-made mini-paddle with a DX-KEY adjustable speed EPROM unit. My CW style is not so good but it allows me just to exchange RST and a few words or a short QSO. My eLog program is BBLOGGER, simple, fast, friendly-interface, complete, daily and free upgradable.:::::::::::::::::::::>
