KF2ZO
ANAND

 

The photo above is current setup and one below is the previous one.
Now my interests are in trying various types of antennas and watching the results during the gray line propagation, as the sunspot cycle is progressing. As always, I enjoy working DX on 20, 15 and 10 meters mostly. Antennas in use presently are: an 80-meter center-fed Zepp, quad loop, and a triband rotary dipole.

First In US, in the 1970s, I was operating CW with reciprocal license for about 10 years, with a small radio Heath HW16 and wire antennas. Family kept me busier than my hobby!

In 1994, I returned with the US call KF2ZO and better radios Collins, Kenwood and antenna with CushCraft 20m mono band Yagi on a 35 ft. tower, R5 vertical and G5RV. Actively I worked many DX stations and received some of the Awards I was looking for: WAC, WAS, WAZ, DXCC,CQDX and OTC. A storm brought down the Yagi antenna in 2004, and with busy work schedule and left with only wire antenna, I lost track and slowed down my activity.

My first call was VU2AI (license No. 279) in Madras (now called Chennai), India in March, 1963. My first rig consisted of a US military surplus receiver BC348 and a home made transmitter with 6AG7 VFO and a 6V6 driving single 807 final. About 40 watts to a folded dipole antenna fed with twin lead ribbon cable. I was active only on 20 and 40 meter CW bands, and was able to make multitude of DX contacts including, DJ,DU,GM, JA, VK, YV, K&W. Thanks to “73” and “Practical Wireless” magazine from UK.

The first field day I ever participated was, as an active member with “Madras Amateur Radio Society” at Mahabalipuram in 1964, operating the club station.

The picture below is the TLM-18 Space Telemetry Antenna at the Project Diana site of Camp Evans, the location of first EME contact and as well my radio club OMARC with its club station N2MO.

The next picture is my triband rotary dipole.
