Antenna System

For HF I am using a Fan Dipole for 10/20m or a G5RV Junior to operate on 40m too.

I have also added a indoor Magnetic Loop antenna, capable of running from 3-18MHz.

For Local contacts on VHF and UHF, I am using a Diamond X300 vertical.

And for some DX and Digital work on VHF, I am using a Wimo VHF Bigwheel antenna.

Upcoming plans.

  • Due the fact that the Icom IC-9700 is not available for a long period of time, Plans have changed for now and I have traded my IC-7300 for a IC-7610 to focus more on HF.
    Maybe I will go with Transverters instead for operating on VHF and up.
    Build or Buy Bigwheels for 2m and 70cm to replace the Diamond X300 vertical as I like DX more than local repeater use.

    This would be the best option at my location.
    Even working on satellites again should work.                  

  • Building a receive Magnetic loop remotely tunable from 40-10m.
