222 MHz ping216 viewsScreenshot of the first meteor scatter ping I ever copied on 222 MHz. This was part of an eventually completed QSO with K7MAC in Idaho (Grid DN13).

Alex242 viewsMy friend Alex came by on a fall Sunday morning and helped get the new 222 LFA on the long mast. The Hazer makes this a fairly simple operation, although a tower climb to the 15 foot level is required. Antennas from top to bottom: 144 MHz, 222 MHz, 50 MHz. Metal box holds a GaAs FET preamp for 144 MHz and two coaxial relays.

VHF antenna stack209 viewsAfter 13 years and VUCC on 144 MHz, I no longer run stacked 2M9SSB yagis for that band. The lower beam has been replaced with a 12-element LFA for 222 MHz at about 44 feet. The box just above it houses the 2m preamp. On to new challenges!
