Running on SSB/CW/RTTY

Yaesu FT-2000

Yaesu VL-1000 solid state linear amplifer

"A pushbutton kilowatt station"


NEXT CONTEST:  CQWW 160 SSB ...If you need CT I'll be running at the top of the band 1990-1997 kHz.


*** NEW Stuff ***

I am now using a home brew, low noise receive antenna for 100 kHz through 10 mHz.

Take a look in the "Antenna Farm" section for details and website address. 

W1CTN QSL Policy ... under construction



160 meter contesting notes:

I have been entering the CQ and ARRL 160 meter CW contests the last 2 years as QRP to test the effectiveness of my 160 L.

I have determined that I have a consistant night time range of 700 miles. I think this pretty good for 5 watts and a bent piece of wire.

In ARRL 160 (2013) my signal was worked in France and as far west as Wyoming. Both were worked before 11 pm local.

CQWW 160 CW (2012) I worked Hawaii KH6, which is about as good as I think I can do with 5 watts output.

I have finished my QRP operating on 160.

I now operate with 100-1200 watts depending on conditions.


Antenna farm:

Tennadyne T10 Log Periodic @ 63' 20-6 meters

40 meter dipole @ 50'

80 meter dipole @ 60'

1/4 wave 160 Meter Inverted L - 70' vertical section w/35 - 100' radials

60 meter 3/4 wave inverted L (actually my 160 L, swr is flat on 60 m)


W1AEX RECEIVE LOOP http://www.w1aex.com/loop/loop.html

This 85' loop is a good bi-directional receive antenna for my location. Your mileage may vary.

It does what it is suppose to do.  This loop reduces the ambient noise so you can copy a marginal signal on the low bands.

I do not have the room for a beverage. Note that I have not needed to use a preamp with this loop, even when copying non-directional beacons in the 300 kHz band.

Like "Mikey" said in a 1970's TV commercial..."try it, you might like it"
