Ham Member Lookups: 21757

 

 

Active from 472 kHz to 432 MHz, all modes.


Phased verticals for 80m, only during the winter dx season. During the summer only one vertical for 80/60m.

 

 

Set-up for 472 kHz, good for trans atlantic QSO's with VO1NA

Overview: TS480 (RX), HEXFET TX and power supplies

HEXFET TX. Low pass filter on the rear side, Output toroid under the fan. Oscillator is a DDS unit (30 Euro, ebay) on 944-958 kHz, followed by a (keyed) divider 4013, providing two outputs with 180 degrees phase shift, and driving two driver ic's ICL7667. FETS are IRFP360LC. Tx runs maximal 600 Watts. Efficiency 85%. The power supply is a surplus 50V telecom unit from a fleamarket ($30). TX/RX relay and CW-VOX on the right side of the board.

Tuner for tuning the 160m inverted L to 472 kHz. Estimated efficiency of the antenna: 5%

 

Equipment:

Transceivers: Kenwood TS480, Yeasu FT100, Elecraft K3, KX1.

Home made transverters and transmitters for 500 kHz, 70 MHz.

Linear: home made with 3x813, Expert 2K-FA.

 

Antennas:

Steppir 3 elements for 14 - 28 MHz (since 2003) with 1 extra director for 50 MHz and 3 extra elements for 70 MHz (thanks G4EZT, see his webside).

Inverted L(s)  for 1,8 MHz.

Vertical for 5,4 MHz

(Phased) vertical(s) for 3,5 MHz.

Sloping dipole for 7/10,1 MHz with traps.

Dipole for 10,1 MHz

Beverages in 4 directions;  DHDL loops.

 

Results:

DXCC: nr 1 Honor roll (353, deleted included) mixed and SSB, 338 CW.

160m: dxcc 312 (deleted included) worked and 312 cfmd, WAS (50 States) and WAZ (40 zones).

DXCC challenge: around 3150 band points.

50 MHz: WAC, WAZ 31 zones, DXCC 179 countries (deleted included) worked.

Winter time, few years ago: house, beam and inverted L
