As you can see i managed to get the whole shack in one picture
About a year ago i decided on a major downsize in the shack.
the place was a mess, computers, radios, mulitbanders, monobanders, transverters, tuners, meters, interface for them all, and numerous feet of power leads, patch leads and black spaghetti, for my own sanity in the end the lot had to go, so it was back to basics for me, HF radio, tuner and a meter, an interface for digimodes, morse key and a mic, and a small UV-5R+ handset. i woud not say back to where i started because from day one here 6m was the primary band everything here was geared for 6m.
(6m and 4m set ups now sold)
Here is just a run down of modes, and power i use on them modes, and in the order i use them
CW 100w max
JT65 15w max
JT9 15w max
WSPR 2w max
RTTY 30w max
SSB 100w max
FM 5w max on handset.
the antenna's are also down to a minimum, in use now is a approx 140' (42M) end fed random longwire, it makes its way around the property in various planes, vertical, horizontal and sloping parts, using trees and a pole on the way, the lowest part about 10' (3m) the highest about 30' (10m) and tuned against the farmers sheepwire and barbed wire fencing. and also a X50 dualband vertical for the handset on top of the 30' pole. and for the SpE season on 10m a Solarcon vertical in a tree about 3 meters above ground.
E-QSL ONLY PLEASE
no need to fly bits of card around the world these days.
not a member of the RSGB so no cards sent or received.
E-QSL for CW, SSB, JT65, JT9 & RTTY contacts but not WSPR sorry.
but always accept and reply to SWL reports
