Re: My aerial @ shack


I lay the guys out further away from the base and coil all the cables up (which are taped together)at the base in a four foot coil.

I coil this as it comes down, let the guys just fall, then I tidy them up once its down and lay them loose on the floor.

Its ready then to go up next time emoticon

Re: My aerial @ shack

A few massive changes in the shack here now mate, plenty of new radios have entered the fb696 shack, some ready to take up the hill, Got a STRYKER for 10/11/12 mtrs to play on when mobile, then grabbed a yaesu ft 857 and then an ft817 just for the hell of it, The Alinco went as you know and has been replaced with a Yaesu [sign in to see URL] CB gear aswell mate, its getting pretty full on the shack bench , i think i better sort a new picture [sign in to see URL]

Cheers Paul, was busy on sunday most of the afternoon so would have missed you anyway, did pop in and have a listen out for John but no luck.
Nice new radios in your shack mate, sounds good emoticon Have to have a sked sometime and catch up. Have had a few comments on my mast and seems like I need a cage to support the rotator bearings with having a vertical on top - not thought of one before, never finished are we? lol
Catch you soon mate

Re: My aerial @ shack


New radio in the shack, Yaesu FT2000D, loads of buttons and knobs to fiddle with - after I read the book of course! Had some good audio reports - even being told I sounded like Dave 001 on his 870 - I`m taking that as a compliment emoticon

Re: My aerial @ shack


 Hi Al
 Getting some good quality gear in there, thought I might have seen a view of the rotator box with a fresh coat of paint on it. Or a big valve Amp. I guess that will slowly evolve into a real good studio. Just want some outside shots of the mast and Antennas next.

Re: My aerial @ shack


Well the wonderer returns, Al how's it going? Hope all is well in the welsh shack, that FT2000 looks great centre stage.

I see your radio collection is growing and nicely too may I say! I am still playing radio and haven't managed to shake the virus off after all these years. To be fair I haven't been doing much Freebanding but have been around on other bands, 555 is always available to me and with the new Ofcom changes I'm thinking of a sudden new type approved radio purchase! Speak soon as I anticipate being around a bit more [sign in to see URL]
