Ham Member Lookups: 1188


Hello, this is Tim on this end. I'm a new Ham passing my Technician and General exams in November, 2013. I passed my Extra exam in January of 2014. I live in the Northern suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia. I am currently studying for my ARES certification.

- Rig: I recently picked up a gently used Flex 5000 software design radio. This is a fantasitc radio that will take me a while to fully understand. I'm also on 2meter and 70 cm as well with an Icom ID-880H in the shack and also in my truck. I have a couple of HT's as well. D-Star is interesting and I enjoy talking to Hams around the world from my ham shack or truck.

- Antenna: Currently I have G5RV in the trees behind my house. The antenna is set up in an Inverted "V" format and works well on several bands. I have a Doublet that will behung in the trees as well in the new future.

- Antenna Tuner: LDG AT 200 Pro II. This tuner was recommended and works well for my current 100 watts of power.

- DC Power Source: My primary DC power supply is an Alinco DM-330MV. It has worked well for my Icom ID-880H and Flex 5000 radios. I also have a 100 AH Deep Cycle battery for emergency operation. I have the West Mountain Radio PWR Gate supplying power to the battery and also the West Mountain Radio Rig Blaster to distribute the DC power. Also on the bench is a West Mountain Radio PWR Check that monitors the current draw and also the charge voltage. This device is very handy for monitoring your power consumption and even has a PC interface so you can graph the voltage and current or wattage in real time. No, I do not have any financial interst in Wesst Mountain Radio, they just make good stuff!

- Microphone: Both of my Icom ID-880H radios are using the factory HM-133 mic. I see no reason to change this since it is working well. The Flex 5000 is connected to a Heil PR-781 mic. The Flex 5000 has a TX EQ so I have adjusted for the heavy bass in the mic profile.

- Motorcycle Rig: I also have a Gold Wing motorcycle.  I installed an Icom ID-880H radio and connected the audio to the intercom so I can hear and speak through the headset in my helmet.  Here are some pictures.

Thanks for stopping by.
