Ham Member Lookups: 143

 

I'm a relatively new ham, but after my first Field Day, I'm a seasoned vet, right? Not quite. But I'm happy to learn. If we made contact, it's great to meet you!

My rigs are completely portable since I live in an apartment.

For HF, I use an Icom 706MKII (100W max) on battery power, with a switching power supply for when I can do so.

For VHF/UHF, I use a Baofeng UV82-HP handheld for local repeaters and for driving across the state while working the VHF calling frequency.

Currently, my antenna collection consists of:

  • a set of handmade dipoles:
    • 40m
    • 20m
    • 10m
    • 6m
  • SuperAntenna modular vertical for regional work (or long distance if I can get some elevation)
  • 2m/70cm mag-mount vertical for car
  • 1:1 balun center insulator, handmade
  • Unbalanced center insulator, handmade

I usually use an MFJ mobile antenna tuner to fix up my SWR to at least 1.5:1.

For digital modes, I use a Signallink (not the USB variety) to interface with a USB sound dongle connected to my laptop.

Most of my HF work is at some operating position in a neighborhood park where I can mount a vertical to a table or where I can throw a dipole between trees or painter's extension poles. I'm always on the hunt for new parks to find the best success and comfort while working contacts.

If we work each other, consider yourself lucky, since I'm still learning. Good to hear from you!
