Ham Member Lookups: 5011

 

"Mac" is the name I use. The St George location is a highly restricted private community, got HOA to approve X-50 for all hams living in our Community. Currently using 276' attic dipole with a 40 meter element resulting in great signal on 40 and 60 m. Big section of dipole looks like an open loop. Feed with 51 feet of 450 ohm ladder line to ATR-20.

 I put up Comtex 30 meter vertical from DX Engineering. Vertical ground is one 43' wire and 170 of one inch braid.  Vertical is 21 feet 9 and 1/2 inches.  It tunes on all bands except 160 with the ATR-20 tuner.  Contact reports are mixed when compared to the attic antenna.  Noise is 4 to 6 "S" units lower on this vertical !  Overall, it works better than the dipole.  Signals may be weaker, but they are more readable on the vertical.

The Duck Creek Village, Utah Station:

2015- Purchased 1.25 acres at 8660 feet on top of a ridge.  I am 20 miles north of Zion.  Current antenna is 160 meter dipole at 45 feet running E/W feed with 450 ohm ladder line to Palstar AT5K tuner.  Noise level is ZERO !  Looking for big results with Commander 2500. 1200 foot loop at 35 feet is not working well as it is a right triangle with a base of 58 feet. Will reconfigure summer of 2017.  40 meter dipole at 35 feetrunning N/S feed with LMR-400 throug ATR-20 works very well. Station will be mostly solar except for the big amp.

October 2016 put up UHF repeater at the Duck Creek Location;  447.325/127.3
