New To Radio / Re: New to HAM Community What is a good beginner rig?
« on: June 28, 2018, 04:15:51 PM »
Hi new here just passed my tech and general tests this past weekend. I am looking for suggestions on a good solid rig to start with. I am looking at a Yaesu FT-8900R as a potential starting point and a chameleon F Loop Plus or Alpha Antenna 10-80M Multiband Military 2.0. I would welcome any comments or suggestions and looking forward to learning more and hopefully being able to contribute to the site at some point.


Thanks Phillip   KE8JWD
The mentioned radio and antenna is kind of a strange combination. The two antennas cover a lot of HF bands but the radio only has 10m. On the other hand the radio has the 6m, 2m and 70cm VHF/UHF bands which the antennas won't cover.

Antennas / Re: Interesting mod for off center fed dipole

Remember that a low SWR does not indicate an efficient antenna. Otherwise I would immediately swap my dipole for a 50 ohms resistor since the resistor is both compact, lightweight , easy to set up and has a consistent low SWR across all the HF bands :)
