Promoting Single Sideband DX'ing on Six & Two Metres
New 2m Yagi Design On Test:
The 'Enfield Yagi' by G6ODA is now on test. 9 elements on a 4m boom with a gain of 11.2dBD. Please send signals reports if heard.
Six Metres Update:
I am dedicated to 6m DX'ing, DXCC and locator square hunting using SSB only. However, I have decided to scale back 6m activity to allow more time for 2m testing during the solar minimum years. Antenna system is now reduced to a single 5 element Vargarda. Check out my 6m DX'ing page.
Remote Radio Testing:
I am currently testing remote and mobile remote operation of my home station using just an iPhone. Check out my Remote Radio page here
