Station Info

Radio Equipment

For HF I am using an Icom IC-7300 + Heil Pro Elite IC headset.
For VHF and UHF I am using a Kenwood TS-2000.
Both radios are used for phone and Digimode operation.

To Tune the HF antenna system I am using a Vectronics HFT-1500 antenna tuner.

 

Antenna System

My Antenna system is pretty simple but practical.

For HF I am using a 2 x 10m Wire Dipole with feedline.
For Local contacts on VHF and UHF, I am using a Diamond X300 vertical.


For VHF “DX” I am using a SQualo antenna that is mounted on top of my HF Dipole mast.
The SQualo is a Horizontal polarized omni directional antenna.
I use this mostly for Digital modes on VHF, this works amazingly well!
