I am active on HF from home and also HF mobile, I live at the bottom of a valley, so my VHF and UHF activity with my Yaesu FT847 is mostly via satellite I am active on SO 50, Funcube, AO7, FO29. For satellite work I have a Yaesu FT-847 feeding an 8 ele 2m yagi and a 12 ele 70cm yagi at a fixed elevation of 45 degrees, mounted on a Yaesu G-250 rotator. I also have a mast mounted SSB Electronics 70cms preamp. I have messed around with omni antennas for satellite, but this set up is relatively cheap, easy to put together and out-performs omnis by miles.

For HF I use an Icom 7300 and a FT-2000 with a venerable Yaesu FL-DX2000 Linear amp and a Hustler 5BTV Vertical and a G5RV. I also run a KW2000B for some retro ssb fun and do a bit of AM on 80m with a Codar AT5.

I also use the FT 847 for general 2m and 70cm activity, and via a Diamond triband colinear I also use it for 6m.

The QSL card shows one of my three dogs, a Westie called Phoebe on the cliff path at Polurrian Cove which is not far from my QTH.
