SARC gets a new UHF VHF antenna and some tower repairs

Visit for blog write up: The (SARC) Superstition Amateur Radio Club of Mesa, AZ needed to replace their UHFVHF repeater antenna and repair the hard feed line which had a large dent in it from years back. This video shows the club taking down the tower, replacing the antenna and fixing the hard line.

Winding a 1 4 Current Balun with 15 turns.

This video will show how I wound a 1:4 Current Balun using 15 turns per side. I used a T-130-2 toroid and 18 gauge copper wire. 73, N7JFP

I'm testing my homemade, three element yagi antenna on 28.5 MHz. The Gamma Match is made of a mobile-antenna socket with an 38 Inch (hy-gain) rod. The directors are made of six shorted radials of an old 27MHz, 14 GP antenna by LEM. The boom is made of a 2x2cm ALU-tube. Equipment: YAESU FT-920 with G-250 rotator, antenna analyzer by VECTRONICS: (SWR-584B)

6 Meter Portable Dipole N7JFP

A list of parts needed is at 13:28 of video. This video shows how I made my 6 meter portable dipole using collapsible antennas and PVC. I used a MFJ269 to do SWR testing. To center the hex coupler nut and to keep the epoxy cement contained I used a rubber grommet around the coupler nut. A length of 51 to 52 inches per side will enable a usable SWR over the entire 6 meter band. Now if the band will just open up so I can try JT65 mode on it. 73, N7JFP

Magnetic Longwire Balun simpel

Der Film beschreibt die simple Herstellung eines sog. Manetic Baluns 1:9. Eigendlich ist es keine Balun, sondern ein UN-Un Übertrager mit einem Spannungsübersetzungsverhältnis von 1 zu 3 und einem Widerstandsübersetzungsverhältnis von 1 zu 9. Eine verhältnismäßig hohe Impedanz einer Langdrahtantenne wird herunter transformiert um an den Wellenwiderstand eine Empfängers oder Senders angepasst zu werden.

Bad Ass! ICOM AH 703 5 band antenna. Great QRP mil spec antenna

This HFVHF 5 band antenna is worth every dollar. Quick deployable for preppers, hams, FEMA, and military agencies. I'll show you how well it works and how it functions. No tuning required or little tuning in a couple cases. A series of videos based on this antenna to follow under different installs and locations.

Buddipole with IC 7000 and a surprise!

http:ve3cnu.blogspot.com201308buddipole-with-ic-7000-and-surprise.html On the deck again with my IC-7000 hooked up to a Buddipole on 20 meters. This time, I hook up my YouKits Antenna Analyzer and demonstrate and explain the readout. I highly recommend these relatively inexpensive analyzers for HF antenna work. See my other video on the YouKits analyzer for more details on it.

Set up a Baofeng UV 5R Repeater System

Instructions on how to set up build a Baofeng UV-5R VHF Repeater System or use Baofeng as repeater. This setup could be used or deployed in emergency or disaster, SHTF or WROL situations where communications are vital for survival. Instructions presented in this video are for educational purposes only. Pardon for the grammatical and pronunciation errors; English is not my mother tongue.Check it in action * you need: The Baofeng repeater system is composed of an RX (receiving) unit and a TX (transmitting) unit so that means you'll need 2 Baofeng UV-5R radios. No need for radio tone controller. The setup takes advantage of the VOX feature (Voice Operated Transmission) on the TX unit. Aside from the RX and TX units, you will also need a stereo cable with 3.5mm Male and 2.5mm Male ends just like this: http:dx.comp3-5mm-male-to-2-5mm-male-audio-cable-50cm-length-26999Other notes: Frequencies have to be dialed in on the repeater system and the radios which will be used to communicate with the system. In the video, I used 2 UV-5Rs to communicate with the repeater system but you can also use other 2-meter portables as long as it can do frequency shift and you can specify the shift direction. It could be any brand-model portable transceiver and not necessarily a Baofeng UV-5R. * Drawback Though not evident in the video due to close proximity of the test radio units to the repeater system, there is that so-called 'receiver desensitization' (a.k.a desense) which can be "defined as on-channel noise or a strong off-channel signal that degrades the receiver sensitivity. On-channel noise can be coming from the repeater or passing through the duplexer from some other source. An off-channel signal can be close in frequency and physically located somewhere else (another site), or it can be located in close physical proximity to the receiver, but not necessarily close in frequency. Either situation will restrict the receiver's capability to detect (pick up) a weak signal, such as a low-level signal from a mobile or handheld radio." http:www.bird-technologies.comResources~mediaBirdFilesPDFResourceswhite-papersDuplexers-and-Repeaters_some-basic-information.ashxSolutions: 1. Vertical and horizontal space separation isolation of the TX and RX antenna2. Install a duplexer tuned to your desired RX and TX frequencies; enables you to use only one antenna for the entire repeater system setup (connected to the duplexer). Crossband repeat with 150 plus MHz separation. Receive on UHF then transmit on VHF, separate TX and RX antenna, no duplexer. hope this helps. Thanks a lot for watching.

Homemade Magnetic Loop Antenna In Detail

I was asked for a more detailed video from my homemade loop antenna, I hope this one answers the open questions? The basic idea for this antenna comes from a book called: "Technik, Tips und Tricks rund um den Empfänger" (Techniques, Tips and Tricks around the receiver). I just changed some minor details like the copper pipe instead of copper cable.

End Fed Half Wave Vertical Antenna

This is an empirical "shoot-out" between a 135' OCF dipole mounted up 40' in the clear vs. a 31' end fed half wave vertical sitting on the deck. Hope it awakens interest in an age-old aerial design that offers an alternative to the compromise antennas so often selected by those who have to deal with restrictions - or who want to operate portable and actually make some contacts...
