Greetings from the New Jersey Shore

Thanks for the lookup. First of all if you are here it means that either we had a QSO or you hearing me in QSO so please say hello to me. My name is Hiram and I been hamming since 1995. I enjoy both DX and ragchew. I can be found working HF bands (DX) and VHF (ragchew).  I have recently upgraded my license class and call sign and have decided to start all over working DXCC, WAS, WAC, etc.


My Rig

My radio is a Kenwood TS-2000 which I use on 160 thru 10 meters, 2 meters and 70 cm.  The amplifiers are an old Heathkit SB-200 which is getting me 700 watts max on HF, a Mirage B3016 which gets me about 200 watts on 2 meters and a Mirage D1010 which I get about 140 watts on 70 cm.  The mic is an old Optimus 33-3017 which I bought for $5 at Radio Shack in 1996.  I keep getting great audio reports which are unsolicited.  My Kenwood MC-60 is now in the closet as this little $5 microphone outperforms it.


My Antennas

My antennas are mostly all monoband Delta Loops suspended from trees that are about 60ft high.  On the right is an IMAX 2000 which I use on 10 Meters.  It is in a 65ft tree with about 15 feet sticking out over the top of the tree.  On the bottom is an M2 9 element yagi for 2 meters  I since have added a K1FO 15 element yagi for 70cm (not pictured).


My Location

I live in a great area for Ham Radio. Only a couple of miles from the ocean and flat terrain. The ground is mostly sand. There isnt any rock in my yard. When it rains it never puddles. I can actually put in a ground rod with my bare hands (even though I didnt). By far the place for DX of any I ever lived in. Great location, lots of room for antennas, no pesky neighbors and my very own highway exit sign. How can I ask for more?



I have been on 2M SSB lately.  Its a lot of fun.  I run about 160 watts into this 9 element yagi by M2.  The antenna is up 35 feet without the use of a tower.  It is suspended from a tree using 3 ropes twisted together.  The top is tied as you can see in the closeup and the bottom is a tripod.  The antenna is rotatable.  I have been getting awesome signal reports with this installation.  The tree is not taking out too much from my signal and my SWR is 1.3:1 throughout the SSB portion of the band.  I am extremely happy that it works like it does.  All I need now is a nice ragchew group.  I am now on 432 MHz as well.  I am also interested in working AM on VHF and UHF.  At one time AM was the only mode on 2M but its has been dead since SSB came along.  I want to resurrect it!
