Ham Member Lookups: 14507


Happiness is pulleys on each side of the mast ( top of mast shown above right.) It's just a bunch of 4 foot military mast, the kind you see at all the hamfests. More below.

Most days I run this station with some kind of wire antenna, usually a 40 meter wire vertical or an 85 foot center fed (ladder line) dipole. The IC-718 has been replaced with an old IC-706 which is used for digital modes (mostly JT65) and occasional excursions to 6 meters. The FT-1000 (with all the D mods) I use on SSB and CW. I am always experimenting with antennas so generally have a third antenna in the air for evaluation purposes. Not shown (but see below) is a Ten-Tec Triton IV which I enjoy using..

Station notes: The SP-930 speaker has a bhi DSP module wired into it. The computer system is a Dell refurb running Windows 7 pro.

The Triton IV and power supply in the picture above is a 1970s relic, one of the first 100% solid state rigs. Found it at a swap table and was pleased to find it needed very little to make it work right.

The military mast is supported at the base by a tripod made up of, guess what, more military mast. The metal tripod fitting came from a long time eBay seller of fiberglass and aluminum poles. Each leg of the tripod has 2 fiberglass sections. Then the smooth walled aluminum sections slide up through the tripod. I can feed up around 10 sections solo and 12 or 13 with a helper.

 I guy it about 60% from the top with dacron line. This time around I put a couple of marine grade pulleys at the top so changing out antennas will be a snap.
