Re: WB2VVV in Rhode Island

My North-Central NH shack consists of an Icom IC-706 built into a desk. https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/450/19412361741_1da175f23b_b.jpg ski house shack by Ski Freak , on...

Re: Homemade 15 meter Rotatable Coil Dipole

How did your hand wound helical dipole on PVC pipe work out? I have experimented with helically wound dipoles before and found them very touchy to get them to resonate exactly where I wanted. I wound them as you suggested on a form, and also even used slinkys suspended on a rope. For me, they all en...

Home Brew T/R Switch for my Boat Anchors

I refurbished my old Johnson Viking Adventurer crystal controlled CW transmitter (807 final), and also a Hammarlund HQ-110A receiver, but I needed a T/R switch to use them conveniently with a common antenna line. The Hammarlund receiver doesn't have mute contacts so I also needed to incorporate some...
