My Ham Radio Interests
DX-Ing and Digital Modes

Equipment
My main radio is the Yaesu Ft-950. I use it for SSB and digital modes as RTTY and PSK31. I have the MD-100 deskmic connected to this radio.The radio is connected to my netbook Pc (Asus Eee PC 1201HA) or my PC and can be controlled trough the local network or internet. For remote controlling I use the Ham Radio Deluxe suite by Simon Brown. My backup radio is the older Kenwood TS-180S. I still use it from time to time. To power both radios I use two Diamond GSV-3000's switched power supplies. For VHF local FM communications or repeater work I have a Yaesu FT-7800R and an Old Kenwood TS-700G 2m allmode and the last one only for 70cm I use a Kenwood TM-441E. To control the antenna I use the rotor of Yeasu G-1000. On my netbook Pc to log all my QSO’s I use Ham radio deluxe software to work digital modes like PSK31 or RTTY. For antenna on HF I using a 3 el for 10,15,20 m about 21m and another one also a 3 el for 12,17 m about 23m above groundlevel. For VHF/UHF a simple vertical of diamond X-300 about 17m high and 90cm parabolic for 23cm and a 90cm parabolic for 13cm.
