Current main bands TRXs and antennas:
1.8 - 10MHz: Home made 15m vertical with "radials" of 5m and 25m.
14 - 30MHz: R6000 vertical.
3.5-7-14-21-28MHz low hanging dipole
Antenna: 10/11m half wave vertical vertical
TRX: IC-703, modified for RX output/input. can get a signal to more receivers ( distribution amplifier needed).
RX2: FRG-100, running 28074 FT8
Antenna: 1/2 wave vertical
TRX: IC-7600 often running FT8, but is definitely sometimes used for other modes.
Ant2: 6m part of the 3-band V-2000 (Diamond)
TRX2: extra TRX
Ant: 4m 1/2 wave vertical
TRX: IC-7100 for all
Ant: Big Wheel/Clover leaf antenna
TRX: The IC-7100 or an older IC-820and max 1kW amp (Max for antenna: 4-500W)
2m/70cm local FM:
Ant: The tri-band V-2000 and a smaller low hanging 2m/70cm vertical
TRX: Yaesu FM TRX
3cm (yes, 10GHz):
Receive station for the QO100 geostationary satellite:
PLL TV-sat LNB modified for better frequency stability with a 60cm offset dish antenna, followed by an SSB capable scanning radio on 739MHz.
10GHz receive experiment:
Unmodified LNB just below my V-2000 vertical. No dish ! Still I can hear a beacon 36km away.
More to come later ...
