Our New QTH - inside the community of ....
HOA rules have provided operating challenges but I am now on HF with a new Icom 7100 connected to rain gutters.
The entire HF system consists of:
No typical antenna is visible as you can see in this picture. An Icom AH-4 tuner is located near the garage door and the unit is grounded to an 8 ft rod from Home Depot and the output terminal of the tuner connects to the rain gutter. The tuner is rated as being able to tune all HF bands higher than 3.5 Mhz meters although only the 40 meter band and higher frequencies are currently working with this setup. During the CQ SSB contest at the end of October I made contacts in 20 countries on 10, 15, 20 and 40 meters.
The radio transmitter, power supply and tuner are all in the garage and only the control head is in my office/shack. Here is a picture of my inside the house radio equipment.
