Hello my name is Regin. i got my ticket in 2010. been interested in rf since late 80's when i got a Sommercamp cb radio.
i have a Yaesu FT-897D with a 500hz filter and a borrowed kenwood at-200 tuner as my base radio.
for portable i have a Yaesu FT-817D + T1 atu and fishpole with copper tape on the inside of the elements.
(works very well with 4-5 various length radials)
the ft-817 is used for portable/qrp mostly but has it's place in the shack as a 2m repeater and sat radio.
two HT's. Icom IC-2GXAT(seldom used) and a Yeasu vx-8ge.
hf antenna system is a 100 foot wire and a tuner, so dont be asking about rotating it hehe.
Diamond whip for 6m/2m/70cm
am active whereever i can get usable SWR.
Latest addition to the shack is a KX3, what a wonderful radio it is, it's just amazing, truly is.
light years ahead of the 817 and 897, the only thing the kx3 lacks here is 2m/70cm.
And a Heil headset, boy is it good, i love it, very comfy to wear and sounds great, also has a great microphone.
QSL: I use and perfeere LoTW at the moment since i am knees deep in cards hihi.
(Direct with SAE+IRC ok if LoTW is not an option)
(QSL, i am slowly working my way trough the cards, sry for the delay)
as for LOTW i have no idea what's going on there as i have upoaded every qso i have in the log.
ft-817 with the homemade tuner/matcher, iambic key, a ~6ah 3cell lipo pack and a CAT interface! :P
