Ham Member Lookups: 1369

 

Hello, I am a fairly new Ham Radio operator having received my general license in 2011. I enjoy QRP and take my Yaesu FT-817 on the road with me frequently. Using a Miracle Whip tunable antenna, I am able to make contacts in Europe, England, and many states from my hotel room using just 5 watts of RF output. Often I use my Ft-817 as a home base rig as well.

My main base rig is a Yaesu FT450D that drives a 20 M end fed dipole situated 30 feet up.

 

Below are a few examples of some interesting contacts I have made, some with just 5 watts of power.

 

SSB QSO with commercial pilot (*100 watts):
