A random collection of objects and subject I am interested in… or as my wife
would say obsessed with !!
My Transceiver History
The very first thing I did as soon as I got my foundation licence was to acquire
a cheap hand held, I bought my self a copy of The Rig Guide from the RSGB to see
what I should be paying and searched Ebay and found a second hand Yaesu VX-
My very first QSO was with Rod GW7TKZ and Arthur G7BQY on this little radio and it was great to make contact with them at last, in fact it was a great sense of achievement
After this initial contact I wanted more so after a bit of research with my colleague
Ian M0ODD, we both decided to go for an all rounder and made our minds up to go for
the Yaesu FT-
The next weekend Ian and I went up to Norbreck Castle Exhibition Centre, Blackpool for the next available amateur rally and spent a small fortune on new gear.
Ian managed to get his Yaesu FT-
And an assortment antenna parts to experiment with in the coming weeks.
I have now got my Watson W-
I know the Yaesu FT-
I had decided to finance this purchase with the proceeds of the sale of some of the
receivers I have mentioned in my other pages, the Pro-
I have to say that it is quite a nice radio, it’s got good audio and the advantage of picking yet another Yaesu is that the programming is a piece of cake for all the local repeaters using G0LFP’s CSV file generator FTB csv generator. The programs I find that work for me to squirt the csv files into the different Yaesu radio’s are listed below, remembering each radio needs it’s own particular interface to the PC
I then moved up to a Yaesu FT-
I swapped my FT817ND for it as well as the Z817 tuner, the FT-
Following the great tradition of the radio amateur ethos, John Bellis 2W0OSG has
kindly donated one of his Yaesu FT-
It’s just another little project for me to play with as it needs a small bit of work to it to get it back to full working condition
I managed to get hold of an Yaesu FT-
I was able to give the TX side of this a bit of use after I successfully acquired my intermediate licence at 50W. Unfortunately I had to let this radio go to make room in the shack for a new acquisition.
I went to the NARSA rally at Blackpool again this year andPicked up a Wouxun KG-
I wanted something with a little more punch then the VX2R that I already have and for the price of £89 it was a bargain.
The programming of the unit is best done with the aid of a computer otherwise you will have to try and work out what is going on from the manual, which is a little difficult to understand.
I think it is a nice package and will be great fun when out and about during the summer.
Now to my latest HF/50MHz Transceiver the Yaesu FT-
I have added a few extras to the FT-
Taking advantage of the recent Notice of Licence Variations for the 472Khz and 5
MHz Bands I have modified the FT-
I also have a FH-
The latest addition to my ever growing collection of transceivers is the Yaesu ftm-
I have been hankering after an APRS capable rig for some time & this one really took my fancy.
I bought the RT systems ADMS-
I cant wait to get out on the road with this radio and see what the new world of APRS opens up for me.
