 This is the vertical I use for 14 MHz up to 30 MHz. The only thing I have to do is to shorten/lenghten manually  for a higher/lower  band. It takes one minute to do so. I do not use coils, it is "FULL SIZE, NO COMPROMISE".

 This is a simple vertical "long whip" with some arms depending of the lenght ot the vertical, and it is from Buddipole antenna. It is hooked up to my chain link fence around my lot. This fence is 183 feet long/55 meters. The high is 1.5 meters/5 feet. and the posts are at 4 feet/1.2 meters into concrete in the ground.

It is matched with a 1:1 balun, with 50 ft/15 meters of RG8-X coaxial cable to the radio.-

I use a home made sturdy aluminium bracket fixed to the top tubing of the fence.

It is really amazing, what I can do with such a simple system.

           Photo Below, back in 1964/65, Note the home made indoor vertical antenna I was using,   and it works, as I made over 1000 completed QSO in my first 6 months on the air.- wink


Welcome to my page.- wink

Licensed 51 years and SWL before, I am always active in my favorite hobby, HAM Radio.

I am 100% QRP and QRPp (below one watt) into the milliwatts.Happily married to Georgette VE2RH, she is hamming for 43 years this year, and she is also a QRP/QRPp operator So we are a good QRP YL/OM Team Hi! We are proud members of the biggest QRP club, QRP ARCI # 5885 & Georgette QRP ARCI # 13450. http://www.qrparci.org. Check us and join us. You shall certainly love it and you will discover a new world of fun. I hold several of their QRP Achievement awards and I'm most proud of the 7 bands WAC Award NO # 1 mixed modes, SSB/CW. The WAC, award # 16 all CW all 50 MHz, WAS & DXCC with 103 countries confirmed all on six meter (50 MHz).

As of december 2014, my standing is 276 countries worked, 276 countries confirmed, CW/SSB. on HF, and on 6 meters, I'm at 134 confirmed.  After all those years, I still and always get that thrill and challenge I had when I was a kid.Our goals are DXCC, WAC, WAS Milliwatt, we are on our way, as we have lot of time.surprise


Equipment are: Icom IC-703 Plus, & the new Elecraft KX3. My XYL favorites is the Yaesu FT-817ND.Antennas are simple wire antennas of all kind, and Buddipole, Buddistick, Buddibeam, Buddiloop antennas. www.buddipole.com, check their new web site. At home or portable, it is simple, fast to erect and faster to dismantle, especially when thunderstorm or bad weather is coming our way. That's the best antenna system for those who want to experiment all kind of configurations.So hope to meet you on the air, if you hear VE2TH or VE2RH, give us a call, we can exchange few words, or make a nice QSO.

You can also find me on tte NAQCC Sprints almost every month.-

Best 72/73/88 to all, and Have fun everyday,
