My Ham Radio Interests
I am retired and living a few months out of each year in the Philippines.

Some of my past working background involved work in medium market radio and television stations in Eastern and Western Oregon USA.

I have a reciprocal operating permit for operating a Class "A" station in the Republic of the Philippines.

Really like boat anchors receiving and transmitting equipment. Like to build certain crystal radio designs to see what long distance signals I can get.


Other Interests

I am an International Associate Member of PARA, the Philippine Amateur Radio Association.

70cm Antenna

From W6QT

Will attempt to build a 70cm antenna that can reach a repeater about 50 miles distant. My Elk log periodic cannot hit this repeater with 35 watts. The problem is I am "in a hole" and have power no higher than 35 watts at present. I am wondering what type of antenna I could built to reach this machine. My elevation is about 200 feet HAAT and surrounded by hills and this repeater is at sea level. I have my work cut out for me. Any ideas?
