VHF and Above / VHF SSB for Local/Regional Comms? And IC-251E...
« on: June 21, 2017, 08:11:21 AM »
Hello,

Guess what I'm getting next week in the mail?



Yep, an Icom IC-251E 2m all-modes transceiver.

I want to explore the usefulness of VHF SSB for prepping, as opposed to FM or NVIS on lower bands. I don't think 2m USB will be that much better than FM using a high-gain Yag-Uda directional antenna, but it should still have an edge. I still think NVIS on 80m will beat anything for regional comms, but has any of you guys tried 2m SSB? What is your opinion?

I am building this antenna right now: https://m0ukd.com/homebrew/antennas/144mhz-2m-portable-yagi-vhf-beam-antenna/

Hello,

Here is an easy project involving a BNC connector, small plastic box and eighteen 100-Ohm 2W resistors. Total resistance is of course 50-Ohms. What is the total power handling?  ;D
