This is a video of G4ZPZ flying a heli



         At the top of the page is the 40 cw station that I used in high school.

The transmitter is a DX 60 with the HG 10 VFO....running about 60 watts....The receiver is a Drake 2B and also use the sx100.


I use an Icom 880H in the truck with a supergainer antenna.. and for fusion I use a ft 100dr the base radio is an Icom 5100 and antenna is a GP 9 comet.......The antenna for HF is a Hexbeam by K4KIO. This antenna is connected to a   Flex 5000 of or flex 3000...which at times drives a tokyo hi-power linear..the antenna for the low bands is a 80/40 bazooka.  I  have a ft400dr for fusion as a base rig ...the flex 3000 is used for jt65/9 modes and the software is hrd with wsjt and the alert software.

I run a fusion repeater...DR1X which is connected to wires-x....frequency is 147.150...digital only...repeater is connected to

   a wires x room run by k4wzv in Coral springs Fl....Robert has linked his room to Brandmeister ...the TGIF net runs there at31665...the net time is 8:30 so that DMR and Wires X are linked together....also there is a c4fm link through FCS 002 module

10...this gives us a link to wires -x and fusion through fsc 002/ten.

thanks to Ron n9ee for the use of the duplexer and co-ordination...thanks go out to Jim

for the donation....his call is AA0NO...in Clearwater fl...

I almost forgot the dstar link to the government center in New Port Richee. N9EE

has a hybrid dstar repeater there and I am running a DVRPTR board with a rasberry PI

this hot spot is connected to a ft7800 which uses a 11 element beam to hit the repeater....to connect to the gateway do the following:

program in  call  cq cq cq

                   rpt1  W4ECZ space space C

                   rpt2  W4ECZ space space G

have fun on the gateway






The other station is a Icom mark II G which is listening to digial modes on 15m

I use a flex 1500 for qrp and find it to be a great little rig.A lot of hams use

a flex 1500 as just a receiver and have another radio as the tranmitter..great setup..

   I received my licence in 1962 while in high school...VE3ECZ..this also

allowed me to get a broadcasting job at CFOB which was a kw broadcasting

station in Fort Frances Ontario across from International Falls Mn.

     I received my Science degree from Waterloo University and B ed from

Lakehead University at Thunder Bay. I left teaching and took over my parents

resort business ..selling that business and starting Petersons Island Houseboats...

������ Danna and I sold that business and we moved to Spring Hill Fl. She began teaching for the

Hernando Schools and I taught in a private school in Clearwater Fl...Started a computer business

in Spring Hill Fl...this lasted for about 15 years. I thought that it would not last a year.

   I changed my call to W4ECZ and I have had an extra for a couple of years. I like the old

boat anchors as you can see by the pictures....

My favorites are hallicrafters SX 101 and SX111...still have my DX-60 and the

Hammarlund hq 100...

I hope to see you on the bands..
