Remote JT65 operation from my home. Shack is about 10km away. I use my iPad for remote desktop contol PC shack. Setup K3 plus UltraBeam
Another nice project from SJ2W. I build this switch for choose the right antenna per band during M/2 contests. PCB’s (switch and interlock) ordered from the webshop SJ2W. Al parts ordered from Conrad.
Interlock is necessary, so it is not possible to choose for both radio’s the same antenna. Check the webshop from SJ2W for all information, specs etc.
I want to switch al my antennas fom my shack. Several designs where found on the internet, but not good enough for me.
I start with some experiments with the Arduino controller board, so i thought it must be a switch controlled by Arduino, easy for use, and easy to change antenne names. The switch PCB was ordered from Mikael SM3WMV And i ordered all the components by Farnell.
The basic program was written by Johan, PE1RWL and it is available with the schematics by sending my an email.
To travel with your equipment it is important to protect this. The Lafayette Survivalbox meets all the requirements, waterproof, shockproof. I bought 2 from this boxes by Portofoonweb.
Building Elecraft stuff is fun! Also this P3 kit, a real addition for the contester. Here a video from some CW sgnals
New bandpass filters for our contest station PI4M. Based on the famous W3NQN design, delivered in a kit by 5B4AGN. I’d like to the to do the solderwork, espacially SMD. Winding the coils is not by cup of tea, so this credits goes to PI4M member Kor, PA0KDV. 3kits available now, maybe more in the future…
For the big contests the crew of PI4M are always busy to improve their antennas. For the upcoming CQWW SSB contest, we need a better antenna for 160m.
We have chosen for an inverted L. More pictures and info available after CQWW SSB 2014
-Vacuum capacitor 1000pF
-18m Spiderbeam pole
-12.5m Spiderbeam pole
-18 radials 20m each
Every year in February the PE3V crew come together to participate the Dutch PACC contest. The last year result was a 3rd place in the M/M section. Can we improve our record this year? The claimed scores have been announced:
PE3V 1.378.564 (YES!)
We have to wait for the final score, we can only show you the pictures of our wonderful weekend …
