I have about 240 contacts on SSB from 64 countries as of today, 30th of April 2017.

Rig1 : Yaesu FT-991                                     PSU: QJE PS30SW IV

Mic: Behringer Ultravoice Xm8500, with 2 cents foot switch from China wink

Antenna HF: monoband 40m slighly slanted delta loop, fed at 1/4 wavelength with home made ladder line 12m followed by a choke with 7+7 turns on a DARC RK4 core with the same RG58a/u that goes inside the shack to the transceiver. Aluminium pipe is on top of the roof, holds the antenna top at 14.5m in place. Total cost for building the antenna was only 65 Euros, including a 6 meters aluminium pipe, pulley, polyester rope, ceramic isolators, 1.5mm2 black electrical PVC insulated wire,  rg58c/u + UHF connectors. WSPR reports I'm heard in VK, JP, Wx with only 5 watts. Not bad for a first antenna, eh?

Antenna VHF/UHF: cooper water pipe dual band J-pole (opens the repeaters ~25km away even if there is a massive hill in between). (down)

If I can hear you, I can talk to you. Hope there won't always be S5-S7 noise on the band...

Still reading? About me: Born 1977. Started with electronics in 1990, when I also built my first FM transmitter. Engineering diploma obtained for electronics and communications in 2001, but I have worked always in the IT field. Bought a CB radio for traffic information even before I had a car. Bought a Baofeng UV-B5 before having a license. These made me to obtain the license for amateur radio, a dream I had since 1996. Licensed in 2014 spring, but only bought my first HF radio in november 2015. First radio contact made on HF on 30th November 2015. Class II (CEPT T/R 61-01 equivalent) certification obtained on the 8th of April, 2017.
