I'm BACK after HEX repairs, 50% oparational, height only 6m above ground


The winter hurricane wind was too strong even for a forest setup

December 2014 breakdown


My name is Ivo, have been working with radio's since 1990, but my first contact with HAM was in 1978 in Ghana West Africa where a priest named Bob had a nice setup in Secondi-Takoradi in the school I attended. Since then I knew I will have a rig one day :) First DX was with made with a mobile radio Uniden PC-122 (AM+SSB) on Santiago 1200, then started Dx-ing on rest of 11m band with Uniden HR-2510 under the callsigns 161PLSY062, 161PN112, 161WAW017. Was convinced by friendly HAM's who heard me on 11m to make a license, finally made it in 1994.

Locally using FM, 2m and 70cm, with FT-7800, ant Diamond X-510 home freq 145.575 MHz,

in mobile IC-706MKIIG - Screwdriver by SP5VR + Midland NR-770R

or portable IC-92D -  repeater SR5KPN-438.200 MHz  or SR5WA 439.350 MHz

Now in new QTH ouside town in the forest of the Kampinos National Park , ground level - only 87m asl with seasonal water table about -2m bgl helping a little so conditions are as they are :(
Using ICOM IC-7200 100W - my log program is BBLogger

Antennas: all wires , stretched between trees, between 7-15m agl (~94-102m asl)

1 - Homebrew  horizontal delta loop for 80m as described by OH3GGQ with 1:4 balun-air core

2 - Hexbeam 10-12-15-17-20m made from parts suplied by SP5DPD, thanks Wojtek ! - about 15m agl -on mast by SP9MZH with small Conrad rotor

















Hex beam flag mast 

 3. - W3DZZ made by SQ8OBE - a present from SQ5F, thanks Daniel !

 4. - Homebrew  folded dipole for 28-29 MHz - 5m agl- according to LA8OKA

 5. NEW - Homebrew  Long wire 50,6m (166,2ft) - for 160m - with 1:9 Balun

 all works via Antenna Tuner MFJ 969     and 8 port multiswitch made by SQ5IZJ












6. - J-Pole for 50MHz - made according to DK7ZD

7. - X-510 3x 5/8 (144MHz), 8x 5/8 (430MHz) about 11m agl (~98m asl),

      so this is a forest setup, not easy but challenging :)
