First licenced in 1962, operated from club stations YU3CST and YU3CNO.
My favorite ham activity is SOTA chasing and activating (more information about SOTA in http://www.sota.org.uk/)
My home antenna is horizontal delta loop (37 m wire, 8 m agl) fed by 300 ohm twin lead cable, connected to internal KX3 tuner using 1:2 balun. KX3 can easily tune this antena on all bands from 3.5 to 50 MHz.
When activating summits, I am using two antennas:
- lighter antenna for long ascend summits is inverted L made of 12 m wire and of four 6 m ground radials. 4 m fishing pole (minipole) for this antenna is only 300 g.
- heavier antenna is doublet 2 x 6,7 m, fed by 300 ohm twin lead cable, connected to KX3 with 1:1 or 1:4 balun. 9 m fiberglass pole for this antenna is 1,3 kg.
