I'm Back on VHF, a rather small antenna setup but I'm back.On 2m 4x 11el F9FT @ 18 and 21mover groundI'm also QRV on shortwave 80-10m with a Cushcraft R7 vertical. and a 42m off center fed dipole (FD4) will change soo to 2x 20m + open wire feed + symetric tuner.
On VHF I prefer te work DX in SSB/CW or meteor scatter SSB/FSK441
The Picture above :
F/PA5MS working Meteor scatter in IN77uv Square June 2002
I was first licenced as PE1OGF back in November 1991 and mainly QRV on 144MHz in Tropo Meteor-scatter and EME. Also Iono-scatter and Aurora.
Till Dec 20 2001 my callsign was PE1OGF, I passed for my CW test and now I'm PA5MS !!! PE1OGF is QRT !!
