Operating position414 viewsThis shows where I placed the IC910H for this event. You can just see the coax cables routed over the sun visor and above the door to the rear window. Another photo shows the cables entering the car through the window. Simple and low tech.

Field site 482 viewsEquipment tent and two antenna masts. On the left is a 4m mast carrying the yagi for 1296 and the vertical for 50 MHz. On the right is the 6m mast with the antennas for 144 and 432 MHz.Feb 26, 2010

feed dipole for 2.4 GHz445 viewsHaving left the real feed at home, this dipole was soldered to an N connector and placed at a point where I thought the focal length was, based on the length of the original feed arm. Comparing the two later at home showed that the coax had placed the dipole within 20mm of the right position. Feb 26, 2010

Antennas and car518 viewsThe three antennas on the mast are shown here against the clouds. The high light level from the clouds means the exposure for other parts of the photo was lower than ideal. When viewed in full size the details are readily seen.Jun 28, 2009
