My Ham Radio Interests
Just now I'm in a 19-inch rack-mount phase. I'll rack-mount your dog if he comes with rails.

Wouxun hand held radios for 2M/1-1/4CM and 2M/70CM. Working on a homebrew two-transistor 30-meter CW QRP transmitter. Working with a European television dongle project to make an SDR VHF/UHF/SHF receiver. I did get a surplus Dell PowerEdge 1850 server mounted into my server cabinet and it is up and running. Truth is, all my projects crawl along slowly. I dream of dancing lightly, element to element, on the ultimate log periodic array, Rohn tower for the boom, me riding as it circles to a new heading, waving as QSL cards come floating in from the clouds.

Antenna Mast Work

September 19, 2015: Getting better reports for my 10-watt HF CW signals now that my inverted V doublet is at 40 feet at its feed point. Ends are at 10 feet. Feed line is 450-ohm window line. Atop the mast for the HF doublet is a Tram 1481 for 2-meters & 70-centimeters. The Tram goes up another 17 feet making the whole installation a bit ambitious considering wind gusts we get here.
