Taking advatange of some free time this weekend I changed the organization and set up of my radios.
Here’s a sample photo, while I arrange photos of the process (before and after).
Starting this weekend, along with the new year comes a new shack!!
I will begin a complete makeover of my shack, with new and old radios and a new set up. I will do my best to document each step of the way for you to enjoy and also to comment and advise.
Finally, my station is up and running. Thanks to a loan from a good friend of mine (while my Icom 7000 in in repair), I have been able to operate the last few days and getting the feeling back on the DX´s.
Granted that I am using an R8 vertical antenna, so far the results have been good. In addition to the regular DXs, I´ve been able to work less normal countries when using a vertical antenna with 100 watts: K6IJ/KH6, PA/A61CK, V51WH, among others.
For most operators this will be no big deal, but for me, getting back on the bands while operating in limited conditions, I am excited.
