It’s time for a podcast devoted to amateur radio contests. Now we have one. Welcome to Zone Zero.
After two years of “all talk, no action,” the radio room has been rebuilt.
An overview of my SB-221 amplifier repair project — a notebook about what it needed and what I did.
Here’s a homemade, lightweight but full-size triband yagi (with directors and reflectors in V configuration) interlaced on a 32-foot boom. And it works like a dream.
Expand a 40M rotatable dipole into a 2-element yagi with a fixed wire element. Add a relay to the wire and get instant 180-degree rotation, too.
This is a home-made five-band antenna made from bits of bamboo, some hose clamps, a few wires, and lots of hours of puzzling, building and — at last — huge satisfaction.
Anyone can get the gear I use. Visit the store.
