A new wire antenna on my roof for the 40 meters band, and on the field comparison with the GAP Titan DX.
Planning to setup a double bazooka antenna for 7 MHz during next months to verify performance of the Gap Titan DX on that band. I feel like the GAP is not so well performing on that band and I’m goint to setup for the CW portion of the 40 meters. This is the basic schema
I’ve recently introduced a Raspberry PI 4 as main remote RTX controller for my Kenwood TS-590s. This allows me to control the Kenwood TS-590S from the iMac simultaneously with several applications, including RUMLOG, FLDIGI, WSJT-X. The issue Could not control simultaneously my transceiver directly from two or more applications. Additionally remote connection from the internet
You need this—traps with lower loss, higher Q, increased power-handling capability and four-band coverage! This improved multiband trap dipole introduces a new trap design and a change in trap location. The antenna features double-coaxial-cable-wound traps having lower reactance and a higher quality factor (Q) than earlier coax-cable traps. . Article published on QST, author and
What is Amateur Radio, what do radio amateurs do? Do I have to buy expensive commercial equipment, or can I build my own? Will I need massive aerials (antennas)? What kind of licence do I need? How do I get one? Do I need to pass technical exams and morse tests? Where do I start?

How to setup a long wire antenna
on Saturday 25 May 2019 i will take part to the upcoming Florence RadioFest as organizer. The Florence RadioFest is a local amateur radio HamFest managed by the members of the ARI Section of Florence. We expect to have over 50 private amateur radio oeprators and more than 10 amateur radio business companies represented.
The Sun Can Power Your Ham Station and a Whole Lot More! Solar power or specifically, solar photovoltaic (PV) panels, have become increasingly available as a power source. Solar PV is ideal for powering Amateur radio equipment because PV panels are almost always designed to charge 12 volt battery systems. Coincidently, most Amateur radio equipment
VERTICAL DIPOLE Since I had purchased the Kenwood TS-590 transceiver a few months before I got my license, I needed an antenna (or antennas) right away for listening on the ham bands. The antenna that I put up first was a vertical dipole for 10, 15, 20 and 40 meters. The reasons for this selection
