DO not answer me if u can't do the trouble to answer me via E-QSL
I hear u calling ON the Digital modes and i answer u everytime .
My station consist of the following
Kenwood TS-870 running 100watts
Digital station is TK-90. Most of the time i play ROS and JT-65-HF 50-100 watts
Amplifier is Heathkit SB200
Coax is Shuner and hardline to the dipoles at 20mtrs agl. I hear very good but the QRM in Europa must be terrible cos some stations really have trouble receiving my 400 watts.
I am situated on top of a mountain with a lovely view over the valley. No not the one in the picture , thats a place where i sometimes go and work.
Speaker is SP-230 and a 10 inch subwoofer to listen to musical tests.
Powersupply is PS-30 with battery backup
Tuner is Daiwa CNA 2002
Antennas is 80/40 mtr dipole , soon i will add a 30 and 20 mtr to it .
For the higher bands i use a HyGain AV-640 vertical and have just erected a Hy Gain TH3 junior.
I am very active in digital modes and have made over a 1000 contacts on ROS digital mode.
Download it from http://rosmodem.wordpress.com/ and join in one of the most exciting and advanced digital modes ever designed.
I also love to take KTM 525 EXC into Mountains with Icom 703 and go to a Mountain and play radio.
Here is the Giraffe special basically a modified Hustler antenna with a 1.5mtr whip. its been modified even more and nearly 4 mtrs long. Not for highway use but perfect for use in the KNP where speed limit is only 50 km.
No that is not really mounted on the bike , for field use i prefer a 30mtr wire to tune with Icom 703 .
The 4x4 got Kenwood TS-50 in with a few HF antennas and a 30mtr lenght of wire for use via the tuner when i parked at night , Always attach a few earth wires onto base of antenna and connect one to the water pipe system
Got myself a new kenwood TK-90 for mobile and/or digital use , still deciding where i want it , probably will want two hi hi.
Not over crowed with buttons and hidden menus and perfect for mobile.
I am very clued up with rebuilding the hustler antenna into a MUCH better antenna, yes ofcourse it becomes longer , but i get it to work on 10,11,12,15 20 and 40 mtrs . 10,11,12 is using capacitance tophats only that can fold open /close
working 80mtr is possible but results aint good, Some may say i get fantastic results , yea sure buddy.
My OLD callsign
I love building antennas and have one of the best signals out on 40mtrs MOBILE in South Africa.
