Welcome to my page.- wink

Licensed 52 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 with an Elecraft KX3, FT-817ND & ICOM IC-703 Plus.-

Antennas are: Simple wire of all kind, and Buddipole & Budditick full size, no compromise. laugh

See you all on bands,

72/73, Michel VE2TH

QRP ARCI # 5885

NAQCC # 0214

SKCC # 10361

 

 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 

This antenna was built with an old fiberglass fishing rod. The lower part was cut in 2 parts and a wood dowel from an old broomstick was inserted and glue in place. Finally it is helically winding very tight, and I think it was about 130 ft of no. 16 or 18 insulated copper wire. I was running QRP power only, so this way no TVI or BCI and a lot of fun.-
