Mostly weekends on the Air. Starting at 10/12 mtrs and following the bands down to 20mtrs as they close , asssuming that is how DX works .
Main Transceiver is Kenwood TS-870 driving a TWE 1KW amplifier to around 600-700 watts feeding into a TH3 at 5mtrs agl or a Hygain AV-640 vertical at 6 mtrs agl for 30/17/12 only, it can do all the bands 40-6 mtrs but the TH3 works better for DX.
160/80/40 bands i use the Kenwood TK-90 radio feeding horisontal dipoles at 12mtrs agl.
Location is situated on top of a lovely high mountain sloping down all directions .
VHF comms is easy up to 200km on VHF Repeaters 24/7.
Mariepskop , The radar station , often go here to work , no time to play radio , but one day i should make some time. Average height above mean ground is about 1100 mtrs .
