I operate 2 meter SSB with 17 elements at 50 feet using my TS-2000 and a Mirage B 2516 G amp.
I enjoy HF mobiling with my Yaesu 857D and a Atas tunable antenna on my Ford Ranger. I have worked many states and countries with only 100 watts from the mobile!
I am now doing QRP with my You-Kits HB-1B (5 watts) and the 250 foot loop antenna. It works great! What a challenge to work cw with 5 watts. I sometimes do QRPp (1/2 watt) with my Forty 9'er, my Pixie or my Rockmite on 40 and 80 meters. My latest is a Rockmite 3 with 2 watts. My SKCC # 1298 and NAQCC # 5722. Sometimes on CW I use my newly acquired Heathkit DX60B and my Heathkit HR-10 receiver. It is exciting to use this 1960s equipment like I desired when I was a teenager!
I sometimes do satellite communications. I have even made several contacts with my UV-5R dual band FM HT and then numerous contacts on CW or SSB with the TS-2000 and my 2 meter beam & 432 halo. I am also working satellite FO-29 with the 857D and a portable beam from the truck!
My other hobbies include - my family, reading my Greek New Testament and gardening. I am a born-again Christian and love serving Christ in the Church of the Nazarene. My church page with audio sermons is at http://bernenazarene.org
