Welcome to my QRZ.com page.
This is my shack at home.
When I'm home during my vacations, I mainly use the beautiful FT 101 ZD perfectly working
I also have two other old jewels in perfect conditions; a VHF Yaesu FT-225 RD and a receiver Yaesu FRG 7700.
I like these old style radios
My vertical antennas: HF " Diamond CP6 " and the V-UHF " Discone ", both mounted on the balcony.
Unfortunately, I don't have so much space for antennas but everything is working fine and I'm happy with that.
I'm a yacht's captain, and my radio station is installed on board of a large yacht.
Currently I'm operating from the south / west Turkish coasts with the call TA/IZ5KID, transmitting from the port of Turgutreis.
And when we go at sea I'm using the call IZ5KID/MM
I made some modifications to easily switch and use the yacht's marine band SSB antenna, with the approval of my Boss ;-)
This antenna is a " Comrod " 7 mts long vertical, mounted on the port side of the yacht
For the best performaces I also installed on the feeding line of the antenna a 4:1 Balun with a very short counterpoise.
To tune the antenna I use a small MFJ 16010 and I check the reflected power with the built-in SWR meter of the Yaesu FT857
