KJ6UFY'S QTH/Grid: DM09cl

KJ6UFY is Military Retired after 29 years of service with the United States Air Force and now lives in beautiful Reno, Nevada. Amateur radio is only one hobby on the bucket list which has been accomplished. Other hobbies include wine country touring & riding Harley's with his wife, fishing in the eastern Sierra national forest, and portable HAM operations.

There is a little of this young man in all of us.

Being new to the home on the Truckee River in Reno, Nevada the antennas are limited to a 102' G5RV w/MFJ-941 tuner, and the Hustler BTV4 w/ground radials.  Once settle however, the tower and various rotating antennas will be placed into service making quality DX and QRP receiption clearer and easier over the HF spectrum.  The primary transceiver is the Yaesu FT-920 with a Kenwood TS-440S as the backup.

Secondary to HF, 2Mtr & 70CM is enjoyed using a variety of cheap to expensive handhelds including a Kenwood 2Mtr base and my newest addition, the Wouxum KG-UV920P-A as seen below.  The primary dual band antenna is a Ringo AR-2 backed by a Jetstream JBT-2 Verticle.  Although repeaters are plentiful in the Reno area, Simplex contacts are the most enjoyed.

The portable radio & antenna set-up is being prepped for this year (2014). The "Kit" contains an IC-730, a monoband 20 mtr rotatable Dipole antenna and a G5RV Jr. All powered by a 12 battery & Solar panel purchased from Goal Zero. Photos will be posted as we go.

Below is a pet project which turned out unexpectedly well.  Shown are two 20 Meter Hams Sticks(MFJ-1620T & MFJ 347) configured in the horizontal creating a rotatable dipole.  Also on the pole but difficult see is a 10 Meter wire dipole built from shop scraps.  Both antenna systems work surprisingly well.  The intent is to take these on day trips to the high Sierras along the California/Nevada border and transmit "Picnic Portable".  I've had excellent reports using this system.

A recent add is the Hustler BTV4 three trap verticle antenna with numerous ground radials.

 

Our new QTH! Retired, Settled, Relaxed!
