APRS Realtime Map Tracking K0RU/M CW On-The Air: K0RU-9 Mobile
I love CW. I operate alot of CW mobile, and would love having you aboard some day.
I've been licensed since 1970, at the age of 10, and been going ever since. I have a couple people I would like to thank for my amateur radio pleasures, W8MYZ - Mike, no longer with us, but most definetly in my heart. WB8TTH - Wally (my father) whom I admired the most, little education, hard worker, and always on my tail to do my best.
The one thing I love most, is giving back to Amateur Radio what I have learned from my Elmers, Mike and my Father were the BEST, no I don't mean the best at CW, the best at Phone, RTTY, nothing like that, I mean simply put they were the best TEACHERS one could ask for, they had confidence in me when I needed it, and they always encoraged me to do the BEST I could, they both are truely missed, and in my heart each time I key my rig.
I enjoy Elmering others into Amateur Radio, and enjoy teaching. If you've worked me, thank you, if not, please look for me on the bottom end of any band, I don't run Phone much at all, but find your key, and jump in my qso, I will run ANY SPEED, and I love to Ragchew.

40Meter 4-Square Verticals
4 each 33 ft 6 inch approximately verticals, DX Engineering 4-square controller, each element has 1/2 inch 75 ohm hardline running to them and then from the dx engineering center controller to the shack is approx. 150 foot of 3/4 inch 75 ohm hardline with 1/12 wavelength terminators on each end for 50 ohm matching
Here you can see the termination method I used for each vertical element. Using 3/4" plumbling compression fitting and cutting them I was able to develope a very nice compression fitting for the PL259 connection to the elements. You can see the alluminum homebrew plates for the connection of the ground radials with sheet metal screws.

The antennas are as follow:
Starting from Left to Right, top left corner is the new Yaesu Fusion Radio called the Yaesu FTM-400DR its running as a dual band mobile (one band is 2 meter FM) (one band is 2 meter APRS) with a 200 watt amplifier in the trunk. Mounted in the center console is the Kenwood TS-480HX remote head and just in front of that is my paddles I'm using a Begali Signiture Iambic Paddle mounted in the cup holder and just in front of that you can just barely see the Indiom Press LogiKey K5 keyer I'm running. (and yes, I send 50 wpm while I am driving down the road going 80 mph)... 73 Rob
