I Started out this journey into ham radio at a very young age ........I had the pleasure of listening to shortwave with my Dad and he taught me what an s meter was and what it ment. The station of voice of America was amoung many that we listened to and that is when I became interested in being able to transmit my voice into the air and hope that it would fall into someones speaker that would talk to me. It took the time of a swiss watch to make everything come together to be able to enjoy what I have now in this hobby.

I enjoy 6 meter and vhf in general long distance communication, when the bands there are not up to the taking, I enjoy hf just as well.

I run a Kenwood station  consisting of a TS-590 for hf and digital, and a TS-2000 for all modes of vhf/uhf.

I enjoy this hobby because of my Dad, Delmar D. Heidenreich or just Del to the folks that knew him well. I only wish that he was here to enjoy it with me, I guess that I will have to be satisified that he is watching and listening to every qso that I make and I know that he is enjoying it as much as I am.

Miss you pop!

'73 for now......

 

The new station---------Kenwood TS-2000 for VHF-UHF SSB and FM, the audio is handled by a Heil PR-780

Above the TS-2000 is an Ameritron RCS-8V remote antenna switch for the 2-Meter and the 6-Meter Yagis, work in progress is the installation of a KLM 2M-16LBX 2 Meter boomer for SSB, a Cushcraft 13-B2 for FM, an Arrow 52-4Sfor 6 Meter SSB

Kenwood TS-480SAT on the left is for 6 meter SSB.........Kenwood TS-480SAT on the right handles the HF work. Below the left hand monitor is the SignaLink usb unit to handle the Digital Modes.

Tower number 2

AS OF 12-6-2012

Thanks for the help Dad, there is nothing like being 70 feet in the air and having the presence of your wisdom and friendship, I knew you were with me because it all went very smoothly like it was planned and indeed it was, in the making for 2+ years. You would have been 91 years old on this day 12-6-2012, Happy Birthday anyway! From all of us here at the W9DDH household and of course Charlie and Jan as well.

As of 12-15-2013

On December 5 Mom came to be with you, I know that you both are together once again.

THE LIGHTED CROSS IS FROM ME TO THE BOTH OF YOU-SO YOU KNOW WE ARE KEEPING YOUR SPIRITS ALIVE!!

WE LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU!!

The new antennas are up!!

Tower number 1 now is the home of a Opek UVS-300 VHF-UHF omni on top, right below that is a Cushcraft 124WB wideband boomer for 2 meter FM work, on the bottom is an Arrow 52-4S 6 meter for SSB.

In the foreground is tower number 2 with a comet GP-15 tribander for 2, 440, 6 meter FM on the top of the tower and below that is a Cushcraft 13B2 for those hard to get at FM stations when I am in the garage (shack #2).

 

 

Tower number 3 now has something that it did not have before, an antenna!!!!

It has been the anchor for the Carolina Windom on the South side of the property for the last 3 years and it now has a KLM 2M-16LBX 30 Ft. boomer for 2 meter SSB. It is fed with 1 5/8 hard line from the shack and LMR 400 flex at each end connecting the antenna to it and the shack to the other end just outside the shack wall.

The first test was to check the SWR and to the large antenna, there was almost no movement on the needle to talk about, with that flat of an SWR at 144.200, it should work just nicely!
