I love to dx with simple equiptement.
I sometimes use a flexradio 1500 and only 5w out.
When I first bought the flexradio 1500 I thought I needed a power amplifier to work dx.
But when I started to work bearfoot with my little radio, I soon realised it is possible to work dx.
Now I am trying to get dxcc with this little radio.
I am amazed, evrytime a dx-stations pulls me right out of the pile-up.
I work all-mode so SSB and digital. But most of my qso's are in cw.
Well, I extended my SDR-station. I now not only have the flex1500, but also have a flex3000. I love to work qrp from time to time, but for rag chewing it is nice to have a bit more power. .
Rig: Flexradio 1500 5w qrp and a flexradio 3000 Also have a Yaesu ft897
For portable use SGC SG2020 our a battery powered ft897
ant: windom fd3 on top of a 6floor's appartement
Diamond V2000 on top of our building for 6m-2m and 70cm
small vertical whip on balcony to use with MFJ-1025 Noise cancelor.
comp: Homebrew with a AMD FX8150@3.6GHz ,with 8Gb ram running Windows7.
Rasberry pi 2 with quadcore ARM proseccor at 900MHz
The raspberry pi 2 is a very small and very cheap computer (only 35 Euro).
Have put a Ubuntu mate version for ARM processor. Installed fldigi and use it with the Yaesu ft897, together with a SCU-17 for CAT-control and sound in/out.
This combination works like a charm.
Maybe something for portable use?
