VE2OV REMOTE STATION

I am now retired and living in a condo. No antenna allowed here, period.sad

Fortunately enough I can operate remote, thanks to my friend Claude VE2BUB.

Unless I am signing portable, I operate from home with this system, available from RemoteRig.com

 

 


VE2OV's remote site (antennas & radio station) is at VE2BUB's QTH, 35 km from my home.

 


Credit for that professionnal installation goes to my friend Claude, VE2BUB.

Claude has years of experience in the broadcast industry.

Here is how he put to work some old amps with a control system of new technology.

Most of the gear shown below in the left rackmount is designed and built by himself.

That takes time and patience, but the result is very rewarding.

Special thanks also to Jeff,VA2SS, who helped to configurate the RemoteRig and Webswitch.

(Amplifiers room)

ONE AMP PER BAND

Each amplifier is modified full QSK, and tuned to the center of the band in use.

Needless to say that only ONE amplifier is running at a time !!


Left rackmount : 

On the upper shelves stand the control section: Remoterig and Webswitch, Bandecoder, 12V Power supply,  exciter (Kenwood TS480sat), and also the automatic switching units for the amplifiers, antennas, and 240vdc.

Below are the 3 homebrew (2x813) amps for 40-80 and 160m.

Middle rackmount :

15 and 10m amps (Heathkit SB-220).

The Collins 30L-1 and TMC amp are spare amps.

Hidden behind the rack is the Dowkey automated antenna relay and 5kw dummy load.

Besides amateur-radio, I play music (bass guitar) in a blues band, do some photo, and also hiking.
