Amateur Radio: Licensed in 2010, I prefer to have a small but fairly portable station as opposed to the huge 'book shelf' installation, easy to unplug and load into a vehicle.The reason is that I like setting up field / portable stations. DX Voice/phone is still my greatest passion, and although I do work PSK mode, I'm proud to say about 50% of my DX contacts are on voice.
For Field stations I make use of a fibreglass mast. I prefer antennas such as the Buddipole system,G5RV and X30 -easy to transport and can be deployed fairly quickly either by using the mast on a tripod stand or the fitting on my vehicle.
Nothing more rewarding or relaxing than heading out into the South African bush with my radios and setting up a field station.
I use very basic equipment -
1) TS590S; 2) FT8800; 3) FT2900; 4) Alinco DJ596HT.
