Please don't send qsl cards either direct of via the buro.  If you send a card direct including money expecting a card back you have wasted your money.  I have no printed cards.   I only qsl via e-qsl.

After a few years away from radio I had a very active 2014, mostly due to my purchase of an Elecraft KX3.

Over the year I've added a PX3 Panadapter and a KXPA-100 Linear.

Most of my operating has been /Portable as I only have a small yard at home, and living in a town the RF nosie level is very high on most HF bands :-(

 

If you worked me on 4/5/14 I was /P from my motorbike with a pair of extended ATX Walkabout whips:

I do operate from my car as well !

A group of us often operate from a local park, and on 18/4/15 I put up an inverted Delta Loop for 30m using a pair

of 10m fishing poles from SOTAbeams.

I don't normally collect awards and the like, but when I learned about a new group dedicated to portable operating I had to join :-)

I have a adapted the loading coil and top hat from an MFJ-1792 to use on a portable telescopic mast rather than the original "bolt together" multi-section poles.  I finally got it tuned for CW end of 80m on 22/8/15

The latest addition to my Portable operating gear is a "Festival Trolly" which can carry all my radio

equipment to operating sites away from my car or motorbike.  I used it on 13/1/16 to set up a station on Mersea Island.

 

21st March 2016: First /P of Spring:

 

If you work me, and I send "ant is mobile whip" then this is what I was using:

It is made from two "black stick" mobile antennas, with the bottom one shorted out with a length of copper weave . 

I added the "white bar" to show the location of the loading coil.  The picture shows the 40m version, and I also have  17m (which also tunes 20m), 30m and 80m versions.  More deatils are available on my web site at  http://www.peteronion.org.uk/G0DZB/MagMount.html

I've been trying a simple fixed beam antenna for 30m.  It's essentially a pair of inverted V's spaced a quarter wave apart.  The red one is driven and trimmed for 10.115 and the green one is a passive reflector and is 3% longer.  Inital results are encouraging.  At the least it allows me to not waste precious QRP watts by sending them in a useless direction :-)

If you work me on CW and I send "ant is 2 ele inv vee" then this is the type of antenna I will be using.  I plan to try it out on other bands as well as 30m, with a 17m version pointed at the USA first on the list to try.
