In the years behind us, occasionally I changed my equipment for several reasons.
Some favourite Transceivers stayed behind and are still available and in use.
Sometimes I think its would have been better to hold them all…hi…
My current Ham Radio Equipment consists of :
Afther 12 years absence on HF, when I came back on air again, and I was searching for a new combined HF/VHF/UHF transceiver and bought this FT-
Afther I purchased the Yaesu FTDX-
For the Mobile Communication on the way, I needed a new VHF/UHF tranceiver. Afther I tried several others rigs, at last I choose this FT-
My latest purchase
I use this tranceiver almost every day. Doing lots of experiments and making QSO’s with Digital Modes
The Old ones, still in use :
2 small, handsome handheld tranceiver's for VHF/UHF. Most times I use them during my holidays in Germany of Portugal. Complete, easy to use and not expensive
Most times when I take a tranceiver with me on my Holidays in Germany, I use this small rig and antenna-
Its a old one, but working fine on CW and SSB. In combination with a G5RV, antenna, I have made lots of QSO’s
Living I a Apartment-
My antenna situation now exists of :
HF: Horizontal High-
VHF/UHF : Diamond X30 Omni directional vertical
Both antennas are combined with a duplexer filter , made by Jan, PA0JWX, on one Coax cable. In the Shack I use a second duplexer to split the signal out again to 2 tranceiver's.
Short G5RV antenna for 10-
I also have a old Yaesu FT-
In 2013 I put in a CTCSS encoder so I can used on repeaters again.
Of cource, just like with other Ham’s, I had in the past, lots of other equipment. The most of them I sold again.
For a short impression of the most important ones, take a look at this link :
Combined VHF/UHF tranceiver more than 30 years old, but still doing a great job at my home QTH.
Digital Radio DMR -
Time goes on. Things change from analog to digital
Also the local repater. So we joined them, and wanted to do some experiments on DMR too.
We bought a low-
