New ham(now general AKA Tim), got my technician license Sep. 2011but has been a long time shortwave listener since age 5.
Really enjoying this amazing hobby and willing to meet more people on the air.
My main interests in HAM Radio are VHF/UHF Weak signal and homebrew antennas also HF QRP.
I am building up my high UHF /microwave equippment little by little but it is surely a expensive hobby hi.
Rigs are Yaesu ft-736 w/ 6/2/1.25/70cm module + TE systems 1412g + 4412G.
Yaesu Ft-847.Yaesu Ft-817 for QRP operating. Not exactly a Yaesu fan I do own Icom and Kenwood hi hi
6m antenna is a homebrw moxon which I modified the original design to make it fit in tighter space in the attic.
2 meter antenna is a homebrew 5 elements 28ohm DK7ZB yagi.
For 432 i am using a pair of homebrew 10 element beams with homebrew power splitter.
222MHZ is a homebrew 6 element yagi which I built and designed from ground up.
End fed long wire w/ home brew 9:1 balun for HF QRP the antenna also works on 6m.
Wire HALO antennas for 10/6.
For FM/reapter I built the DK7ZB design dual band two element beam and an wouxun (prounced "ocean") dual band HT.
My attic anttena farm hi.
Slowly starting getting on CW. Yes 5-8 wpm copy speed. so if you hear me PSE QRS TNX
