Hello! The name here is Greg.

Call me on my IRLP node 8969 smiley

Station Overview as of 28JUN2014, ever-evolving! wink


Owner/Operator of Raspberry Pi IRLP (PiRLP) Node 8969.  Give me a call, anytime!  smiley


My newest HF radio is an Elecraft KX3 that I've been using with WSJT-X and JT65 & JT9 digital modes.

That's Fred VE7FMN's "COOLER KX" heatsink on top.

My base HF radio is a custom-painted Icom IC-7200.


My first HF rig is an Icom IC-703+, with a Yaesu FT-8800R beside it for VHF/UHF in an Emergency Communications Box I made.

The main VHF/UHF antenna is a Diamond X50NA about 25' above ground level in our attic.


The main HF antennas are:

#1 - LNR (PAR) EndFedz EF-40/20

#2 - S9v43 Vertical

#3 - 132' wire OCFD NVIS laying on top of our 6' wooden privacy fence in the back yard.


I use a patch panel to select which antenna / radio combination I want.



I have to admit, I love to play with portable HF antennas! laugh


My first portable HF antenna was a 50' 26awg random wire sloping up to a 20' crappie pole with the 50' counterpoise on the ground beneath it.

The portable HF antenna above is fed into a homebrewed UnUn and then to the IC-703's built-in antenna tuner.

Recently tried these Three Antenna Projects.

73 and hope to catch you on the air soon!

Greg, KC9PFX
