My main radio is a Flexradio 5000 software defined radio. I use it in conjunction with an Ameritron Al-1200 linear amplifier and a SteppIR 3 ele beam. I have fitted the QSK option to the AL-1200 for silent QSK operation. I also have a Yaesu FT-920 as a back up radio.
A view of the SteppIR beam at sunset. The tower is an old Strumech crank-up tilt-over lighting tower. The rotator is a Prosistel fully computer controlled through the DXView software
A closer view of the antenna now with the Wimo ZX 6-5 5 element beam for 6m. This is fitted with an SSB Electronics SB-6 Masthead preamplifier.
My station is located in Juffair, a suburb of Manama, the capital of Bahrain. My QRA locator is LL56hf.
Only just inside the locator square!
