It's over! The2017 Solar eclipse was a blast.

Made many contacts in the high heat and humidity.

Here is a very short video of the station setup and a few solar pics.

 

 

Been a ham over 30 years, but not active on HF for the past several.I just rekindled my interest in HF and now have a  IC 7300  (Dec 2016) running barefoot into a LNR EF-Quad sloper.

I started as a SWL'r before getting licensed, so I understand what a quiet front end means; the 7300 is quiet!

The sloper fire angle is approx 040 degrees; seems to work well into Europe. Just added a 2nd identical end fed with a take off angle 180 degrees opposite sloping to the SW..see video. I prefer running 100 watts; kinda' like fishing; never know what ya' might get. I may get a amp some day, but 100 watts is plenty fun for the moment.I also work 2M and 440 locally with a FT 2900 and Yaesu 100DR dual band.Photography is another passion; been shooting for 30 years, professionally and just for fun.


Here's my new Cushcraft A627013S (3) Band for 2M/440/6M.

At the top is a piece of PVC 1.50" dia. Not sure if this will hold up to the continual torque when braking. Hoping to make some new friends on 6. Re-mounted the mast to boom so no longer pulling coax across the driven element. A little nose heavy but seems ok. I'm using paracord from boom rear to rotor as a stay to balance the forward CG.
