Hi and welcome to my page. A brief introduction to myself, i run a small entertainment company called StarShine entertainment. my interest in radio goes back many years, I also have a interest in Radio Controlled models from RC cars to the more complex large quadcopters and aerial photography types. I will also be getting into FPV (first person) drone racing but i need a lot more practise first!!

                                                                                                       

At present my working conditions are in my Shack  a 897 for HF using a OCF dipole. . For 10/12/20 metres i use a Sirio gainmaster antenna on a 40 foot Steel telescopic mast.

I use a twin 2 element co-phased Yagi array for FM 2 meters, and monitoring various VHF frequencies.

I also use a 4/7 element beam polarised for FM for DMR use its pointing currently at GB7PE and is maintained there for that solo purpose.

For 2m/70cm I have a few radio's I am active on DSTAR with a Icom ID-E880 and for normal FM i also run a Icom 207. I acsess DSTAR with a DVMEGA via the 'BlueDv' software on the Pc.

For 2m/70cm SSB I use a 5/8 element yagi (gain unknown) but seems to work fine having contacts from around the UK very easily.

I have a VHF linear which has a max output of 200watts PEP i drive this with a low input from the 897 on 2m SSB to comply with the 50watt requirements in turn to save running the 897 at high power i can suitably supply the linear with 5 watts to return a clean 50w.

Coax cables are Westflex and various runs of low loss RG213

My local repeater and simplex FM antenna is a 3 section X510N and mobile a old PMR MCMICRO  with a Sirio SG7900 supergainer plus a import 2/70 Nagoya or varient type antenna as the SG mobile is a bit too long for everyday driving.

I have recently have lots of SWR issues with this  Diamond X510-N antenna and is under test at the minute for suspected blown cap's. I am seeking a Comet GP-9 for replacement any reviews on the comet will be greatly recieved on my email address starshinemusiccambs@gmail.com Because of the 2nd atenna having problems i am seeking a suitable replacement thus only finding the Comet as anything like a stationmaster etc is a bit to expensive.

My reserve antenna is a X200 style antenna and has ben used on several occasions when the 510 has failed!!

For 4 meters i did use a Phillips FM1000 and a Tait ex pmr radio into a Sirio CX68-4 up at around 25ft to the base. I am looking at replaceing with a 50w Anytone dedicated 4m rig very soon. I have now sold the Phillips and have a tait radio supplied to me by a friend.

UPDATE* I now run a Anytone 50watt radio for 4m into a Sirio CX468-4 at around 23 feet, this seems to be working very well..

this year i itend on building a nest of dipoles for various HF bands which the OCFD cannot be efficiant.  

My power supply's are 2, 50amp Astron linear PSU's and a 30 amp linear PSU for my FM radio. 

My work email is starshineentertainment@discofan.com
