after over 40 years of working the 11mtr band (mainly ssb ) ! i finally decided to take the course and become a member of the amature radio fraternity and i must say it was well worth iti have contacted stations using 10 watt i would never have believed possible
a yaesu FT-5100 dual band with a home made J pole (i made from copper pipe) co-linear vertical also a 10 element beam for 70cm
my latest antenna is a HY GAIN TH3jr-S 3 element (10 15 20 mtr) beam mounted on a 40 foot (10 metre) tower.also full length G5RV(mainly for 40mtr)
Alsoa Yaesu 817nd wich i use for portable with a MFJ delux versa tuner with a Z817 LDG autotuner and delta loop,it is certainly a great little all band radio.
all my contacts are logged in QRZ.com so if we have a contact please confirm in QRZ.com log book thank you
my aim is to have as many qso's on ssb as possible, i find working the less populated bands more rewarding.and of course more of a challenge.
THIS IS MY HOME MADE J POLE FOR 2Mtr 70Cmtr
