Ham Member Lookups: 11835





Greetings from the New Jersey Shore

Thanks for the lookup. First of all if you are here it means that either we had a QSO or you hearing me in QSO so please say hello to me. My name is Hiram and I been hamming since 1995. I enjoy both DX and ragchew. I can be found working HF bands (DX) and VHF (ragchew).  I have recently upgraded my license class and call sign and have decided to start all over working DXCC, WAS, WAC, etc.


My Rig

My radio is a Kenwood TS-2000 which I use on 160 thru 10 meters, 2 meters and 70 cm.  The amplifiers are an old Heathkit SB-200 which is getting me 700 watts max on HF, a Mirage B3016 which gets me about 200 watts on 2 meters.  The mic is something I found on Amazon.com for $25  I keep getting great audio reports which are unsolicited.  My Kenwood MC-60 is now in the closet as this microphone outperforms it.


My Antennas

My antennas are mostly all monoband Delta Loops suspended from trees that are about 60ft high.  On the right is an IMAX 2000 which I use on 10 Meters.  It is in a 65ft tree with about 15 feet sticking out over the top of the tree.  On the bottom is an M2 9 element yagi for 2 meters  I since have added a K1FO 15 element yagi for 70cm (not pictured).


My Location

I live in a great area for Ham Radio. Only a couple of miles from the ocean and flat terrain. The ground is mostly sand. There isnt any rock in my yard. When it rains it never puddles. I can actually put in a ground rod with my bare hands (even though I didnt). By far the place for DX of any I ever lived in. Great location, lots of room for antennas, no pesky neighbors and my very own highway exit sign. How can I ask for more?



I have been on 2M SSB lately.  Its a lot of fun.  I run about 160 watts into this 9 element yagi by M2.  The antenna is up 35 feet without the use of a tower.  It is suspended from a tree using 3 ropes twisted together.  The top is tied as you can see in the closeup and the bottom is a tripod.  The antenna is rotatable.  I have been getting awesome signal reports with this installation.  The tree is not taking out too much from my signal and my SWR is 1.3:1 throughout the SSB portion of the band.  I am extremely happy that it works like it does.  All I need now is a nice ragchew group.  I am now on 432 MHz as well.  I am also interested in working AM on VHF and UHF.  At one time AM was the only mode on 2M but its has been dead since SSB came along.  I want to resurrect it!
