My HF station is a Kenwood TS-2000. I am presently using a 250 foot loop antenna and a MFJ-939 automatic tuner.
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 SKCC # 1298 and NAQCC # 5722.
Recently, I have been using satellite communications. It is exciting and new to me. I have 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
My radio shack and 2 meter beam
Rockmite 1/2 watt QRP transceiver ---------------- HB-1B 5 watt QRP 4 band Transceiver
WA9UUE - when I was 17 years old - 6 meter AM. I enjoy QRP and building projects. The Forty 9'er here!
Using a beam on 435 on RX with halo for TX on FO-29. KC9NHU helps me! My Pixie 1/2 watt.
Using my Baofeng UV5 for satellite contacts in NY. QRP in a cabin in Michigan!
