  WH6HI On  Kauai  in the Hawaiian Islands 


Page updated 2/12/2017

My Station

Radios:  Flex-6500/GPSDO,  Flex-1500, FT-8900, Baofeng BF-F8HP (VHF-UHF)

Microphone:  Audio Technica AT 2035

Audio Processing: dbx 286s

Power Supply:  B&K Precision 1900  (Repalces Samlex SEC 1235M) 

Amp:  Elecraft KPA500

Antenna:  ZeroFive  GP1040  Ground Plane Vertical

Antenna, receive only:   DX engineering  RF-PRO-1B Active Magnetic Loop

Antenna Tuner:  Elecraft KAT500

Associated Equipment:  Computer NUC i5, Elecraft W2 wattmeter,  GPS time server Time Machines TM 1000A

Software intergration:  All the station equipment is fully intergrated via software run NUC i5 computer.   System control is tied together using DDUtil v3.2.5 and allows the Flex 6500 to control the KPA500 RF Power Amplifier, KAT500 Antenna Tuner, the W2 watt meter.  Other software that is intergrated via the NUC is WSJT-X, JTAlert and Log4OM. 

Digital modes: Software used for the digital modes are WSJT-X, JTAlert and Log4OM.  These applications are intergrated and work together via TCP/UDP communications within the NUC.  As of now Fldigi, is not intergrated with the Log4OM and is a work in progress, but is inter grated with the Flex6500 via RigCat. 

SSB mode: SSB only uses DDUtil to fascilitate the control of the amp and tuner.  Loging is doen manually.

Time and Frequency:  Time and Frequancy referance and adjustment is done via two GPS recievers.  The first is a local NTP server on the LAN, via the TM 1000A GPS Reciever/Server.  The other GPS RX is in the Flex6500 and provides a highly accurat frequancy referance for the internal clock of the radio and 10MHz port for external use. 

GPS set up:  The GPS RXs use a single active antenna that is on the roof.  The signal is split two ways to provide signal to each GPS reciever.  Power for the Active antenna is provided by the Flex6500 and power from the TM 1000A is blocked by an internal jumper.

RX Frequency Referance distribution:  The Flex6500 provides 10MHz time refernace signal to the Flex1500, locking the 6500 and 1500 RXs together.  In the future the Referance will also go to Transverters for other communications projects.

My Station Evolution Through the Years

2015  Tewksbury

Above is the last Tewksbury MA Station setup before the move to Hawaii.  With new mike, computer and Flex1500


2014  Year of the Flex

This is the Flex6500 Station with the flex3000.  Also owned a Elecraft KX3 during this time.  


A flash from the past.   Below was my dream station in 1984.

And this is the antenna that was used with it.  There was also a 450 ohm fed inverted V for 80 and 40 meters.

Putting the tower together with my freinds.  

The KT-34A  Being mounted to the tower.

Raising the tower.  There was a duel eyelet at the peak of the roof that was used to winch up the tower.   My back yard was only 12 by 20 feet.  This required the use of a self supporting tower.  

Finished tower project.
