KF2ZO
ANAND

 

The photo above is current setup and one below is the previous one.
Now my interests are in trying various types of antennas and watching the results during the gray line propagation, as the sunspot cycle is progressing. As always, I enjoy working DX on 20, 15 and 10 meters mostly. Antennas in use presently are:  80-meter center-fed Zepp, quad loop, and a triband rotary dipole.

In 1994, I received the US call KF2ZO and used radios, Collins, Kenwood and antennas CushCraft 20m mono band Yagi on a 35 ft. tower, R5 vertical and G5RV. Actively I worked many DX stations and received some of the Awards I was looking for: WAC, WAZ, DXCC,CQDX and OTC. A storm brought down the Yagi antenna in 2004, and with busy work schedule and left with only wire antenna, I lost track and slowed down my activity.

My first call was VU2AI (license No. 279) in Madras (now called Chennai), India in March, 1963. My first rig consisted of a US military surplus receiver BC348 and a home made transmitter with 6AG7 VFO and a 6V6 driving single 807 final. About 40 watts to a folded dipole antenna fed with twin lead ribbon cable. I was active only on 20 and 40 meter CW bands, and was able to make multitude of DX contacts including, DJ,DU,GM, JA, VK, YV, K&W. Few of the qsl are displayed below! Thanks to “73” and “Practical Wireless” magazine from UK. QST magazine added my station photo in the "How is DX" pages in September 1969 issue!
