Current HF setups:

Portable - FT-817ND, Windcamp 3Ah LiPo battery, PowerFilm 13W roll-up solar panel, LDG Z-817 and 35' EF antenna.  6lb (2.7Kg) packed weight, which is heavy for a multi-day backpacking trip when I tried it out.  The DYC-8x7 mic compressor works great, but I'm going with a BX-184M Voice Keyer that would replace the stock mic, and adjusting some of the circuit components to enable a little more compression.   Working on antenna options to lighten the setup.

Mobile - FT-857D with MFJ Mini Stick on Mag Mount (Pending pics).  I usually operate HF mobile only when I'm on a long road trip, and I'm still amazed at how many stations I can work with a temporary setup and very compromised antenna.

Home Station - FT-450D or FT-857D.

WSPR - @EM15, WSPRLite @200mW to OCF Dipole @18'.

I've added a LNR MTR-3B (Sept '17), and trying out various lightweight portable wire antennas.  Rounding up a lightweight kit for extended backpacking trips.

If I've worked you on CW, thank you for being patient with me fumbling around!  I have a long ways to go (lots of listening!) to improve on my decode and sending.


Home station antenna - OCF Dipole with apex around 18' up in a tree (look for the white milk-jug that houses the 4:1 Balun):


I am also active on the local repeaters in Norman OK, portable AmSat, and various DV modes.

QSL info - I reply to QSL/SWL cards, no need for SASE or GreenStamps! (that inlcudes DX).  Do drop me an email if you haven't received anything after a month or so; my apologies for getting cards out at a slow rate.  I am slowly getting my logs uploaded to eQSL and LOTW, thank you for your patience!

Thanks much for working a QSO with me, no matter how long or short - see you on the bands, and GUD DX!
