Greetings -

My name is Ken and I am located in the town of Wellington, Colorado (DN70lq) which is about 65 miles due north of Denver, at an altitude of 5200 ft.

First licenced in 1998, I became quite active operating on the VHF, UHF and microwave bands. My main interest has been the weak signal modes - mostly scatter and E-skip on 6 and 2m. During this time, I was active on 6m, 2m, 1.25m, 70cm, 33cm, 23cm and 10GHz. I also worked quite a few grids using the Oscar satellites, both FM and SSB.

In 2012, after several years of inactivity, I renewed my interest in amateur radio and upgraded my license to Extra class. I have installed a couple of HF antennas and look foward to working the HF bands and experimenting with the different types of propagation.

Here is my current setup:

HF:

Yaesu FT-847

40m: dipole, 4BTV vertical - 100W

20m: dipole, 4BTV vertical - 100W

15m: dipole, 4BTV vertical - 100W

10m: 3-element, 12' boom monoband yagi - 100W

 

VHF/UHF/SHF:

Yaesu FT-736R

6m: 3-element yagi -100W

2m: 12-element K1FO yagi, Tempo 6N2 amplifier - 750W

1.25m: antenna currently down

10.368 GHz: Transverter - 1.2GHz IF - 1W output into a 20 dBi horn (thanks Bill, K0OXU)

 

Satellite:

Yeasu FT-847, FT-736R

2m: 4 element yagi - 50W

70cm: 12-element yagi - 50W

23cm: 15-turn W6OAL Helix - 10W

13cm: 24 dBi MMDS dish - Down East Microwave RX converter

 

73,

Ken

 

Current setup on 2m - 6m yagi is now 10m yagi - the satellite AZ/EL array on the right.

 

 

Old setup with 12-elements 2m, 15-elements 1.25cm, 18-elements 70cm, 44-elements 23cm - Used from 1998-2008.
