This picture is inside my N9FN Amateur Radio Van at the 2014 Illinois QSO Party.

K9FN and I were running an Icom 756 Pro III driving an Elecraft KPA500 solid state amp into a KAT500 tuner.  Antennas were separate 40 and 80 meter inverted V antennas hung from the 42' Will-Burt mast. The Microham CW keyer provides rig control and CW keying and Writelog was used for logging. Power was supplied by a Honda EU-2000i generator.


This picture is at the 2010 Illinois QSO Party.   At that time K9FN and I were running an original Icom 756 Pro driving an SGC 500W solid state amp into an LDG AT-1000 tuner.



This is the N9FN Amateur Radio Van at Field Day with a Cushcraft A3s at just over 45 feet.


This is N9FN/M, my 2007 Buick Lucerne. The HF rig is an Icom 706 MKIIg, and a Yaesu FT-8800 for 2m & 70cm. My Amateur Radio license plate is on my van, so I have a Volunteer Firefighter plate on the car.


This is a closeup of the ball mount HF whip. On the inside, the Icom AH-4 tuner is mounted to a board and fastened to part of the body sheet metal. Note that the wire between the tuner's RF out lead and the ball mount antenna is less than 2 inches long! Several ground straps are behind the carpet and not visible.



N9FN/M at the Brown County State Park.



At the home QTH... A Force 12 - 5BA/D at 60' for 10/12/15/17/20, and inverted-V's for 30/40/80. Also on the tower is an assortment of antennas for 6 meters, 2 meters, 222 MHz, and 70cm. The next antenna project will be getting tower #2 in the air to add 6m and 2m SSB/CW beams, and possibly a rotatable 30 meter antenna.


73, from Dave - N9FN
