About Me

Hi. My name is Alan. Im 54 and im from Portarlington in Victoria Australia. About 30ks sth east of Geelong. Working conditions at the moment are Yaesu ftdx1200 and a MD-100 mic,FL2100Z, Icom IC751A as a back up, 5/8th shockwave vertical antenna less the radials mounted above a Werner Wulf 3 element yagi. Cable is LDF450 Heliax to both. Also have a Magnum Delta Force monitoring 10 meters connected to a hombrew 1/4 wave vertical. works very well. flat swr across 26 to 29 and 50 ohms atleast 3/4s of that. i do have lots of old valve radios that come out to play sometimes and i also have my collection which i just keep adding to. Radio is so much fun. My mobile setup is a Magnum Delta Force, A B300P Zetagi amp and a old school Thunderstick helical whip. A very well matched setup. middle of 26mhz to 28.600 with a 1.1 to 1.3 swr going from 44 ohms upto 60 ohms across the band.The radio and amp are modded so it has direct keying of the amp. Power is turned down in the radio to 18 watts ssb to drive the amp just nice. The biggest thing with this setup is between the amp and radio its 50 ohms. 1.1 swr. The magic numbers you need. well thanks for reading and hope to catch you on the air.
