Mobile Shack

This page is a work in progress…

At the moment the mobile shack comprises of an Icom IC-2730A for 2m/70cms and a Kenwood TS-480SAT for HF. There is a dual band whip for VHF/UHF and a Tarheel 40HP screwdriver antenna for HF.

A while back the mobile shack contains a Kenwood TM-D710E for 2m/70cms voice and APRS on 144.800MHz along with GPS receiver and a Philips FM1100 with remote head kit on the 70MHz FM band. Both are sharing the same hands-free microphone though a home built switch box and a modified Philips microphone.

In the past I have had HF in the car with an IC-706Mk2G and an IC-7000, both of which I have since parted with to fund the Elecraft KX3, which is capable to being taken out in the car portable should I so wish. I’ve left the HF antenna ,mount and G-Whip antenna in the car just in case but most of my journeys tend to be quite short I found I wasn’t making use of HF mobile so much.

In time I shall add some photos of previous mobile operations, including from a bicycle while at University.
