Thanks to Richard Allon from Allsign who made our new hamradio tshirts
A mobile contact on 2 meter with a Magnetic Loop antenne on the car mounted on a magnetic feet. This magnetic loop i have for 10 years now and is build By my good friend Hans PA3ECT.
Now we pick up the 2 meter hobby and i buy a ic9700 and the first i think off was to put the magnetic loop on our car. This is a contact i made in dutch between Albert PA0A and me in the mobile. i was in Putten mobile stabile and Albert at his qth.
Vorige week bij Parmacom (Ger PA0AER) mijn Flex opkunnen halen. Lange wachtijden maar eindelijk toch in ontvangst kunnen krijgen. Wachten duurt lang maar word beloond. Nog nooit zo’n fijne set gehad en erg fijn om mee te werken.
For portable work i always had a Yaesu FT857 and a Kenwood TS-480SAT
The TS-480 i really love. wath a performer. But i had always two radio’s on holyday with us and thats is a bit to much. Also the VHF part of the FT857 give problems. the display has stripes and the freq. was walking during transmission. so that give alot of ………..
after a long time of thinking and searching i did see the FT-991A and that is a radio who has it all. (the FT857 was a very high noise radio and recieve was terrible). but i can say (there are better radio’s) i was really supprised. and very happy with this radio. So looking forward to go on travel with our 4×4 and Roof top tent. and make a lot of contacts. So hope fully covid-19 is soon away .
See you in the log
