Paul, KR2E operates an ICOM 746 PRO as a base station and an ICOM 706 MKIIG mobile. Living in an antenna restricted community presents many challenges. An attic 40M loop provides good 40M operation with the higher bands usable with an antenna tuner. Experimentation is on-going with a rotatable 20M, 15M, 10M dipole on a 10-FT pole, made from hustler long sticks and quick-disconnect resonators on a dipole mount (with balun). Results thru June 2011 are encouraging as I have worked over 175 countries. Also experimenting with a vertical configuration on the ground, using two long sticks and 75M or 40M resonators, no radials. I like DX, contests, rag-chewing, and most aspects of ham radio. Back on the air in late 2003 after a 22-year absence. First licensed as WB2KNJ 1963-1968, WA3LJW 1968-1984, KE7YF 1984-2011. Member ARRL, Arizona Outlaws Contest Club, Central Arizona DX Association.
