The QSO's that I make the most are in the digi-mode PSK 31, RTTY or SSTV.
The tranceivers in the shack are the Yaesu FT-950 with the Yaesu MD200 microphone and Yaesu FT-897 together with the Yaesu MD100 microphone. The FT-897 is used for 144 Mhz and 430 Mhz most of the time. In the somer it's for use in the fields.
For D-star there is a Icom ID-E880 tranceiver.
The antenna I use is Fritzel GPA 50 and home-made G5RV of 17 meters long and with a height of 10 meters. The picture below shows the vertical antennas Fritzel GPA 50, Diamond V2000 and a Alan UV200.
The interface for all my digi-modes is build by Johnny G3LIV and it's a Isoterm Multicon USB (www.g3liv.co.uk).
The computer is also homemade and is a Pentium IV processor 3 GHz and runs on Windows 7 Home Premium.
The software for PSK is always the latest Ham Radio de Luxe program with the logbook included.
Here is a picture of my radioshack.
At the background you see my EPC awards.
The vertical antennas, GPA 50 from Fritzel, Diamond V2000 and at the left the antenna Alan UV200 for my D-Star hotspot .
D-Star hotspot PI1ZTM.
I have also a Hotspot for D-Star at 144.8875 MHz operational 24/7 with the call PI1ZTM connected to the gateway ref.017a
ZTM stands for Zoetermeer which is the hometown of the Hotspot.
Here under you will find pictures of the equipment for the hotspot.
