CI-V operational

View of HRD + Band Scope


Product by 9M2ZAK

Even it's look so simple & 'naked' (i will box it soon) but it working well to operate the transceiver either changing band, mode, RF power, AF gain etc. by using HRD software..it's really doing very good job..if i not mistaken about a month ago, ZAK gave me..until now the CI-V still working & make my job easy especially when changing band & mode, the log book will follow as per current band/mode..no need to do twice job..anyway, big clap & credit to 9M2ZAK for this 'marvelous toy'..hi hi..

Weather condition measurement

Just want to share some sort of 'toy' here..have a couple weeks ago, bought this 'toy' from ebay..very easy to know temperature inside/outside, polar rain, humidity, wind speed/direction & clock..product from Scientific Oregon are the most popular using by any stations around the world..so, very easy to configure all by touch screen plus user-friendly..using 4pcs AA battery or 12DC power supply to power up this 'toy'..with this weather station, easily can know what temperature & weather condition around my station..

Sometimes i can't remember which antenna i'm using at that time..before this i only guest the coaxial cable antenna & connect to my radio..lucky my radio not burnt because of a stupid mistake..after i tag all the coaxial cables match with an antenna, i felt more comfort & easy for me to know what antenna i'm using..so now & so on, i only look into the tag & do TX..

Short Path (SP) or Long Path (LP)

Direction SP to Brazil

Direction LP to Brazil

The Shortest Path not always the best path..sometimes Long Path working much much better rather than Short Path..but normally it's does not last long for LP, only about 20-30min at one time..conditions are always changing..solar activity and it's influence upon the Earth, the position of the earth relative to time of day and axis tilt - time of year - all play major roles in influencing HF propagation..it takes years of listening and operating to learn all these secrets and is what makes HF radio so interesting..

1:1 Current Balun

Simple 1:1 current balun by using RG58 coaxial cable & Toroid core, really easy to done it..this Balun is for my Dalbeam 6ele. Duo Monobander 20/15..Balun functioning to balance carrier between left & right element & to be the isolator between element & feeding cable..Current Balun are most popular using at any antennas..doesn't matter Dipole or Yagi..This Current Balun only can handle less than 1kW power..anyway, thanks a lot to Dal to give me idea about this Balun..

Cylindrical magnet

Easily you can find this magnet at any usb cables, what purpose of this magnet? some people say this is choke..mainly function to limit the RF interference from and to the device..so, at here i try at mic cable to find some different if any on my audio transmision..too nearest with transceiver, that mean a lot interferences will come or absorb into the cable..will look into it if got some differents otherwise let it be abandon there..hi hi
