I HAVE ANTENNAS FOR 160 METERS THRU 432Mhz.
I was first licensed at age 22, 1994 as a Technician class and got (N1TQP) for my first call. Got the bug for CW and went to take my 5 wpm and passed that in 8-29-95, That got my station on HF. With some practice and using computer aided CW generated practice test I was up to 20 wpm, in 12-05-95 got my General License witch got me on to 160 meters and was able to talk to the 1.850.0 big guns. Garry, Sunny, Leo, Berry and Gene now a SK had a lot of fun back in the day on 160 meters. I enjoy 160 meters and 6 meters DX when they are open.
Ground Elevation here above sea level is only 410 feet at my QTH, Compaired to my old QTH at 860 feet. It's a challange to work 6 meters, 2 meters and 70cm form here.
I have a Rohn 25g Tower I use for my HF and VHF and UHF antennas at 70 feet.
I use a ICOM IC-746Pro on 2 meters with Larcon LO LO Amp converted to 2 meters that puts out 1000 watts to M2 2M5WL via 7/8" hardline to a LNA Preamp on the tower at 68 feet and Flex 400 up to a M2 2m5wl at 88 feet. On the Six meter port on IC-746Pro I use a M2 6M HO LOOP mounted just above the M2 2m13wl for ragchewing on a extra pc. AL pipe at 92 feet.
I use a ICOM IC-756PRO 3 on HF and 6 meters mainly. I have a LO-LO Larcon Amp for 6 meters that puts out a 1KW to M2 6M7JHV feed with 7/8" hardline to a LNA and flex 400 up to my M2 6M7JHV at 79 feet on six meters. On HF I also have a small AL-811 that will do 600 watts to my Mosely TA-53M at 71 feet. And a Butternut Vertical out in the yard for 80M, 30m thru 10M with 52 radials. For wire antenna 40M, 80M 160M wires hung between the trees in the yard looking west and east hoping to work A.K. on 160 METERS.
I'm on digital modes all band now running RTTY, JT-65, PSK-31 and with a learning curve trying FSK-441 on 2 Meters.
I use my YAESU FT-847 on 70CM SSB and SAT. with a Mirage D1010N to 7/8" hardline flex 400 up to a M2 432-13WLA at 83 feet, And the 6 meter port I use it for 6M FM. The Comit GP-15 at the top of the tower at 92 feet.
I use my Icom IC-V8000 75 watts for 2m FM simplexe on a 4 element beam fixed at 200 deg. Soon I'll have 4 over 4
ICOM IC-207 2M/70CM FM to a 6,2,70cm Comet GP-15 vertical mounted to extra piece of AL pipe about 4 feet higher then the main mastpipe at the top 92 feet to get into local repeaters.
I'm working for my DXCC on 160M, 80M, 40M, 30M, 20M,17M and 6 meters when the bands are open. And working on WAS on all band and want to say thanks to the OMISS NET (7.185.0 )& HHH net (7.190.0) net for that to get that award on the wall.
I'm still looking for GRID SQ's on 432 MHz, 6meters and 2meters to get a 100 work on 6 meters award on the wall.
What got me in this Hobby was from my Electronics background and schooling. My related Teacher RICHARD R SYRIAC, SR (W1IWV) was a HAM and SK now. And was always full of information on all topics of ham radio.
I do use LOTW for confirming contacts but also like the old fashion method of chasing paper cards, Hope to work you on one of the bands.
Thanks for looking at my QRZ page and I'll try to get more PIX of the station and antennas.
Dave, N1TQP 73's
