KJ6UFY'S QTH

Grid: DM09cl

Reno is a city in the US state of Nevada. Known as "The Biggest Little City in the World",[1] Reno is famous for its casinos. The city is situated in the northwestern part of the state and is the county seat of Washoe County. Reno is the most populous Nevada city outside of the Las Vegas metropolitan area. As of the 2010 census, the city had a population of 225,221 making it the fourth most populous city in the state after Las Vegas, Henderson, and North Las Vegas.[2] The city sits in a high desert valley at the foot of the Sierra Nevada.

 

Reno, Nevada Weather

 

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.

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.

Listening to local Reno morning QSOs on the Reno-Pevine repeater (147.210 + 100.0) over coffee. As well, there are many local HAMS on 146.500 MHz Simplex.
