Another First; well for me at least.

 As I have mentioned I started a YouTube Channel for my Amateur Radio projects. The first project is the construction of a portable HF station. The first couple of videos  “are in the can” as they say. There will be more over time.

I am getting close to the final station setup. Yesterday we had some fun testing, and I am making some minor changes to how the station will fit together. Here is a short video from yesterday’s operation and testing.

Hope you all are enjoying Amateur Radio and taking some time for your hobby.

73 for now, KE9A

A Day of Celebration


Today I set up my G90 outside on the patio and played radio for parts of the day. Well, computers and radio! I helped a friend update his G90 to the latest firmware. We did some basic testing of a magnetic loop antenna for portable use!

I found out what the problem with my big loop antenna was! I have a bad lightning arrestor. Polyphaser here I come.

As I write this I am doing the final uploads to my new YouTube Channel of two videos about how I am building my Portable Ham Radio Station!

A good day.

 I am getting back on the AIR!

The world of ham radio has changed a lot in the last couple of years. This is going to be fun.
