I'm running a 40mtr/20mtr inverted "L" antenna up 30ft.
Also using a dipole for 20mtrs up at only 16 feet agl.
I only run 100 watts max on all bands.
My main rigs are Icoms IC756 PRO2's with a Heil headset pro-plus.
I am active on modes like SSB, PSK31,ROS, JT65, RTTY, WSPR and the Opera dIgital mode.
Been having fun with JT65-HF running only 1watt great mode for qrp work and basic antennas.
Interface's i am using are the RigBlaster Plug and Play from West Mountain Radio in the States. (For the Digi-Modes).
Using a vertical antenna up 20ft on the 30mtr and 10mtr/12mtr bands.(old cb vertical, a stationmaster mk1).
Also active on the 30mtr band on PSK31 mode on 10.140mhz.
Have been trying out dx on 12 mtrs as well with an old cb vertical antenna up approx 19ft. (Which i use on 12mtrs and sometimes on 15mtrs and 30mtrs).
I also have been using the old cb vertical on the 30mtr band for psk31 with good results.(to my surprise)
Active on 40/30/20/15/12mtrs from home qth. (ssb and digimodes).
Also have another vertical antenna a Custcraft R7, mounted about 11 feet AGL,which works well.
Also active at times on 2mtrs and 70cm VHF and UHF bands (using a Yaesu FT8800R) , but mainly enjoy dx'ing on HF :)
I'm 38yrs old and a member of Branch 48 (ZL2JA) in Wanganui.
