A bit more fun. Ten-Tec Jupiter to 40 meter horizontal loop at transmitter site.


Mobile installation.
Note the two radials. They are a 1/4 wave for 20 and 40 meters with the excess loosely rolled up and put into the back of the truck. I believe they have helped overall performance.
 



Field Day 2013 was mobile in the truck while waiting for the power company to arrive at work after storm damage. I made 19 CW contacts. It was short, but I did enjoy it.

Field Day 2012 was run as 1D.

Amateur radio is a great hobby. My interests include QRP operating, wire antenna construction and Field Day. My rigs include a Ten-Tec Argonaut 515, Icom IC-703+, Kenwood TS-590s and TS-480sat, TH-F6A and the TM-271A. I like CW and have finally been making CW contacts again. I am working on my speed so that I can have a CW Field Day and make more than one contact for November Sweepstakes.
