Welcome to the webpages of G7DDN

Home Station configuration



The present setup comprises 2 main radios - a Kenwood TS-590SG for all bands/modes 1.8MHz - 50MHz and a Kenwood TM-V71E for VHF & UHF FM. I also have an Elad FDM-DUO in service as a second SDR receiver and panadapter, as well as a spare transmitter.

I also have 2 Weber Dual Bander QRP Kits (for 80/40 and 30/20) which I like using. HF is connected via a remote LDG Automatic ATU and Balun connected to a home-made 240 foot long doublet fed at about 35 feet high at its centre.

On VHF/UHF I have a vertically-polarised Diamond X-300 colinear and a 4 element Tonna 144MHz beam (horizontally polarised) pointing in a fixed ESE direction.

My QTH is about 479 feet ASL, my locator is IO92BJ and my  WAB square is SP17 but in the Worcestershire bit!

I work most bands, but will be found most often on or around 1.942 MHz. I also enjoy relaxed-mode contesting so you may work me in one of those.
