Ive been a Ham since 1980 i enjoy cw mostly and play qrp cw a lot.
enjoy working on portable antennas i've made several different antennas myself, my best one so far is a small 7 element log periodic which i use in my shack it will qrv on 24 28 and 50 mhz . This antenna is on a 5.5 metre boom and up about 9 metres high, i use an armstrong rotator by pipe wrench to turn it so sorry if i take a while to get the beam on you HI.
I really enjoy taking cycling trips on my mountain bike towing a BOB trailer, i usually cart about 6kg of radio gear on a trip. I like to find a route on Google Earth that take mostly dirt roads to avoid the problems cycling on busy highways.I stay in camping parks in hire cabins over night and eat at local pubs at night so i dont carry camping gear that way i can take my radio gear intead.
I am now area manager for SOTA in vk5 and enjoy activating summits. I use a Elecraft KX3 and Par end fed antennas for SOTA activations, I have experimented with several antennas for SOTA, ending up with end feds and a link dipole.
