Ham Member Lookups: 2398

 

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.

I was first licenced in 1998, and became active on the VHF, UHF and microwave bands. My main interest has been the weak signal propagation modes - mostly scatter and E-skip on 6 and 2m. Since 1998, I have operated on the 6m, 2m, 1.25m, 70cm, 33cm, 23cm and 10GHz bands.

From 1998-2006, I operated most of the avaliable OSCAR satellites, both FM and SSB, from the home QTH and portable.

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

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 uplink

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

 

73,

Ken

 

Satellite AZ/EL array on the right - 145/435 MHz along with the 1296 helix and the 2.4 GHz dish.

 

 

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