Hi I'm Mike
Portable from sunny Bracklesham Bay, South Coast of England
Please spot me on the cluster, it can be lonely portable :-}
My 50ft Portable Tower and Mobile Shack
My Portable Location, farm land next to Ocean ( top right WAB SZ89)
My Homebrew 2 Element Beam for 20m with a 3 Element Beam above for 15m
My Homebrew 5 Element Yagi for 10m
Homebrew 4 Element Beam for 15m. Opperating from the Farm Yard.
My portable trolley set up /PM.
All mount on the trolley, battery, radio, antenna and ground tuning unit. No radilas required
I operate from farm land located next to the beach.
25km (15miles) East of the City of Portsmouth in an area known as
Bracklesham Bay, West Sussex.
With the sea on roughly 3 sides and flat arable land for miles around gives me an excellent location, low noise levels and great take off in all directions for my portable station.
I either use a FT-2000 when portable with my trailer tower
and a FT-450D when portable with my trolley on the beach.
When contesting I use my fully loaded Yaesu FT-1000D, old but a fantastic radio .,
(it is so so heavy to take portable, the FT-2000 is half the weight but sadly half the radio hi hi)
ORB GX1 Headset & Mic.
Powered supplied from 3 x 120Ah Batteries with 2x 100w Solar Panels for the odd occasion the Sun shines or a portable generator when using the FT-1000D
My Short Contest Call is G7Y
Thanks for looking me up.
It is not the class of licence the Amateur holds.
but the class of the Amateur that holds the licence.
