Welcome Peter from Kentucky, USA
Great job John.
Thanks. I got the job. triple the hourly rate. so ya better than minimum which is what I was at. Should have some savings and all that cayght up in a few months and then start paying the house off....
Would love to also. I am in the process of getting a different job. One thaw pays enough so I can afford more toys and also has a set schedual. This way I can plan ahead and actually do some things
I have an FT817nd with a Z817 autotuner and a 53 foot wire thrown into a BIG tree out in my back yard. I bust pile ups many times with this. This is my home setup. But I use it with another 53 foot...
give us a heads up when we can catch you on. I am about 5 hours off your time.
I'm out of the 2M party but would love to talk on 20M. :D
I like that definition. Sorry I am just chiming in. Working a bunch. Anyway. I guess I will have to bite the bullet on the no river shores. But that OK by me.
I just made a post on both the KY QRP yahoo group. And the Bluegrass Amateur radio club site on Facebook. Hope that helps.
Yes Matt I think that our club as stated in it's name is a portable promoting club. QRP or QRO should not matter. That being said there are many other groups that have awards for QRP operations do we...
Congratulations John. Glad to hear you had a great time. Sorry I was unable to contact you portable. Work gets in the way. But nice QSO we had shack to mobile. 73's
SLAB stands for Sealed Lead Acid Battery.
Welcome. Always like to see new faces. I am in the states myself. Maybe we can work each other DX sometime. 73's
Well done. No need to apologize for more than QRP. If you have a set up that will do it why not. I only have QRP but thats me. Lol.
Or if you trying to get 26 miles then 27 qso's
I guess I should write up something on the match box I made for my back pack. It is put into 2 1 1/4 PVC caps pushed onto a minimum length of pipe. I use T80-2 toroids and 18awg wire. The wire fits...
I use an FT817nd with a Z817 autotuner into a home made matchbox end fed dipole. With this rig I have talked all over Europe, including the UK
And at least one contact on every continent. And just...
I love this idea. I do think that 1 mile should be the minimum. However this could be 1 mile from the last QSO. So one could perhaps. Setup and make a QSO.
Walk 1 mile set up and make another, And...
I will definitely be on looking for club members. But until I find a different job afternoon portable just is not possible. And night time isn't going to happen unless I can setup before sun down. I...
Thank for the complement on the table. My dad made them many years ago. I have a set of four and would be in really hour water with the yl. If I took them out anywhere that was really portable. ...
I knew I had taken pictures of my setup at Easter. But I was perusing through my computer files and found a picture of me and my radio. So without further a due
Ya I think it does to. I haven't tried 6 but mine loads from 80 to 10 on a single end feed dipole. Great little atu
I have moved my FT817 to my computer desk and found it hard to see. So I started cutting up some 1/4 inch (6mm) Baltic Birch Plywood. And this is what I came up with. A happy accident it that the...
I bought it at Amazon. Not cheap but is very small and fairly light. Here is the link
Very nice. That light wieght Moxon might be just the ticket here are the house. The 15 would be really nice.
