Boy this needed an update!  

Asst. Net Manager for the Daytime Texas Traffic net (DTTN.US)and NCS on Wednesday, running Sunday's first session (0700 CT) of South CARS.

 

Operating U/VHF on SSB (6/2M and 70cm) on SSB and a very very limted amount of FM. SSB wek signal rig is the Kewood TS2000.  Hf/6 operation especially as an NCS is a TenTec Omni VII.  TenTec Jupiter on the bench as a secondary HF radio when the O7 is on 6M.

 

Antennas:  160M loop fed with 450 ohm Ladder line, and a 40M vertical both are used on several bands, the 450 station has an OCF hooked to it.  13B2 with a corner reflector, stacked 10 el, 432 beams both an omni loop and a 4 element hybrid for 6M.  I do have a dual band vertical topping the U/VHF array. 

 

 

This is bad. This is what happens when you build a G5RV for 100 watts run 500 through it. A valuable lessson learned. DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME!!!! Fire is bad, very bad. It looked to me like there may have been just enough insulation missing for an arc to happen. At 100 watt power levels this wasn't an issue, HOWEVER with the voltages present at the feed point at higher power levels it was. I build all of my antennas now with the idea that I would have 1000 or more watts running to them including my VHF antennas.
