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:

  • Icom AH-4 tuner in the garage - output  connected to gutters and ground
  • coax connection to radio transmitter (in garage) with 15 feet of cable
  • radio transmitter on wall shelf and power cable to garage located  power supply (12 volts) and control cable extends  through the garage wall to my office which shares the same wall. A phone jack is conveniently located in the office wall near my desk and the control cable  uses the same access.

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.
