1977 - 1992
I used to be active in VHF/UHF from 1977 up to 1992 and
my Station was a ICOM IC 202 and a TS 700 by Kenwood for the 2m Range
. For 70cm i used a IC 402 from ICOM. The homemade
PAŽ S for the 2m (150 W) and 70 cm (200W) made
sure, that signal was strong enough . The 16 ele. and a 21 ele. Tonna with an average height of 50
m below ground, performed very well , but often had trouble with the
weather. Especially on stormy days . the wind
often ripped off parts of the Boom, so i had to repair it very often.
But perfect connections were allways guaranteed I really tried
everything possible at that moment. The short - wave missed -out .
The equipment , a Yaesu Line and a Fritzel GPA 50 decided the events
1992 - today
From the year 1992 the place
of my antenna was surrounded by tall pines. What to do - i asked myself.
There was no place for a Beam. But i managed to squeeze a Quad by VDL
right between the trees .There for 5 SW - streames where masked For
40-80m , i hang up a twin dipole 16m high and for 30m a dipol 13m high
right between the branches of the pine. In August 2011 a 6m Yagi
come up on Top of a second Mast which build
