General Discussion / Two transmitters, one antenna
« on: February 18, 2016, 12:21:55 AM »


May I use a coax 'T', or must I use an antenna switch if using two radios and one antenna.

Curious what would happen if one radio transmitted, while the other was on.    and what if it is off?

If a switch is required, it would be outside and that would be a pain.


PLEASE ADVISE.


Thanks all

Wanted / Antenna ID required x3
« on: September 07, 2015, 10:56:10 PM »
I am purchasing a piece of lake property near Crandon, and this tower is attached   ;D

However I dont know what the antennas are.   The house bracket is at 9 feet, and the tower is four 10-foot sections pluss the rotor section.   
HOWEVER, the top Vertical and rotor wires have been cut.   The property was in foreclosure, so who knows why.   
The lower vertical appears to be about 18 feet tall, and still attached to RG-8 into the house, but I have yet to put a analyzer on it.   before a dipole, could a tuner use this vertical on most bands?

I have no clue if the  yagi is even radio, or maybe HD.

Please advise.

I need to climb to repair, and will need tips.     Shouldn't there be guy wires at aboyt 25/30 feet?



Thanks

Yep, facebook required.

One of the freewheelers has a photo of over 10 coax switches mounted to a board!      antenna switches, and dummyload switches galore.  Crazy.

I was going to ask a simple question on how to hook up 2 receivers to three tuners with three selectable antennas.
This picture answers my question    :o

Linux / Re: Free Ham Radio Deluxe downloads
« on: December 01, 2014, 07:35:01 PM »
More linux struggles.   I am in over my head  :P


Ubuntu 14.? is installed on a Dell machine and works great, but no driver for the Serial port, which is how HRD communicates to the Radio. so no-go.

Next I bought a usb-Serial adapter cable, and while Ubuntu sees the cable, HRD running under WINE does not see it as a COM port option .

My next thought is to buy a Serial Card with Linux Drivers and cross my finders.

Otherwise, I may have to use an antique XP machine, that I really dont want to.

Oh and I dont have any Windows software to load to the machine, to make it a dual boot machine.

Any body have any thoughts?    I dont do 'wrappers' or Kernels   :-X


Over my head,
Kevin

I believe I just stumbled upon Simon Brown's server where older versions of HRD are available, however not supported.
http://www.iw5edi.com/software/ham-radio-deluxe-5-download-links

I intend to download and play with it a bit.  I am also intending to run this under Wine on a Ubuntu machine in my shack.

I have no clue how to do either at this point, but If I can get this working, I will gladly pay $100 for a copy if I know it works on my machine.

Fantastic!

Sell the concrete video to the company doing the work!

The recent HRD presentation was great, but I saw that Gary had highlighted his favorite stations:
Calling freqs
Nut Net
Other NNets
Etc.

GARY, please cut and paste your list of favorites, and lets see if others try to top your list!

Come on Big City Kid, or Nels, lets see a throwdown.


Realize that there are four newer HF folks that have inquiring minds . ..

DXing / New to understanding HF bands
« on: August 11, 2014, 08:16:57 PM »

10 meters is based on the sunspot cycle, which we are at a low, so I expect that band to be dead.  Am I mistaken, does it ocassionally have openings?  Can I get automatic e-mail alerts if it does?

Is 160m a winter only band, due to static crashes?   I have a 80m dipole that I want to tune up on 160, but need figure out what mystical tuner I may need to do it.  My current tuner and a new auto tuner wont do it.

80M, is there a general place to shout out CQ on this band, or is it a bunch of southern cliques, that do not appear welcoming.   

Curious

Tx

Gary, this was most helpful!    I will go in search of some of the folks that are currently on HF . .. 

I find it interesting that this post was viewed over 500 times, and yet no one commented on the value it added.

I hope people see this and are more apt to post kudos, etc.

Thanks
