I was limited to wire antennas for almost 20 years and as many of you - I always dreamed about towers, yagis, quite location, etc. Now the dreams are made true. Hope you'll get inspired. Never give up!
NEW QTH: JO92PR. Previous callsign: SQ2BNV (licensed in 1994). Contest call : SN2M
Sound or video file request: if you're hearing well my signal on any band or mode, especially on other continent, please make a recording and email memp3 or wav file, TNX!
JAN 2014, set up is:
* 40/30m duoband yagi @25m up (2el. 7mhz, 2 el. 10mhz)
* Stack 2x GB312 triband yagi @13/22m up ( 5/5el. on 28mhz, 4/4el. on 21mhz, 3/3el. on 14mhz)
* 3el. FB33 triband yagi @7m (fixed 230 deg.)
* 20/15/10m 'SQ2RCM' tribander @16m up (5el. 28mhz, 3el. 21mhz, 3el. 14mhz)
* 17/12m WARC duoband yagi @18m up ( 3 el. 18mhz, 4 el. 24mhz )
Wire antennas: 164m delta loop (used for 160m-10m) ; T-vertical for 80/160m with 60 radials on the ground
RX Antennas: K9AY loop; 8 x Beverages: 300m-440m long (Oct-Mar) -> see pictures
TRX: IC775, IC765 + PA's
Best 73's and TNX for all QSO's
View on Towers 1 & 2
Tower 1 with stacked yagis
Mult & WARC tower
K9AY loop RX antenna:
Since April 2010 I'm using diversity receiving system (2 RX's), which means listening on two different antennas at the same time, on stereo headphones. The signals from separated RX antenna are in the left ear, and from TX antenna in the right ear. This is just fantastic, multidimensional experience and appears to be very helpful for peaking up weak signals in deep QSB.
Main interests: Low Bands, Receiving Antennas, DXing, Contesting, CQing, Working Long Path, Working Zone nr 1.
