DL6FBL's VHF Rig

(7 / 7)
DL6FBL's VHF Rig
This is the 144 MHz setup, as I also used it from 950m a.s.l. Wasserkuppe mountain (JO40XL) the last years. Locator of the place here is JO40UM (265m a.s.l.). There is elevation in all headings, but less than 1 degree. Only from 60 through 150 azimuth there is a four degree elevation. 200 metres to the West there is the river Fulda with a lot of wet land behind - I guess that helps a little... The rig is a modified Kenwood TS-711A and an old Henry 2002 with 2x 8874 (makes 700 watts out of the 25 watts in). On top of the transceiver you see a matchbox and the sequence controller, which protects the preamp on top of the tower.
