QSL: Direct

XML Subscriber Lookups: 2116

21st-Century Kenwood TS-440S:
  • IF Tap to SDR waterfall
  • IC10 Kit for CAT control of radio
  • Interfaced to a PC for RTTY, FT8/JT65/JT9, SSTV, other digital modes.
  • PC remote controlled so I can QSO from home while anywhere.

Antennas:

  • Attic-confined bent dipole, 54' long. 
    • 9' horizontal legs to 45° slopes that are 18' long, total is 54' long. 12' air-insulated parallel feeders.
    • Looks kinda like this: http://i.imgur.com/qZ8EmS1.png
  • SM0VPO 80M Spiral Antenna.
    • Vehicle mountable for special projects
  • Two homebuilt 2m vertical dipoles.
  • Copper Pipe 2m J-pole.

APRS: I periodically function as an APRS-iGate. Will go full-time when I have a dedicated radio for it. If you have no need for an older, but functional, 2m transciever that I can rig up to my server, please let me know.

  • Kenwood TR-7950, modernized PL-tone encoder.
  • Homebuilt interface I fit into an old hand-mic chassis: http://i.imgur.com/hHFl7bU.jpg
    • Easy Digi Audio Transformers, Opto-isolated PTT, Serial-to-USB control.
    • Plays very, very well with DireWolf

Please do not write me suggesting I use a cheap Baofeng. These RDA1846S/RDA5802N chipset-based radios are deaf on 2m, and their "DSP" filter kills my packet decoding success rate to about 20%. 

Also working on:

  • Long distance VHF-APRS transmission.
  • Web-of-Things / Home automation and data collection.
  • Security technologies.
  • CW. I'm actually learning it.
  • Extra in a few weeks.

QSL Cards - I'm not meddling around with online intermediaries and reporting services. I send cards periodically and generally reply when I recieve them. Let's cut out the middleman, go direct.
