just as the subject asks,do you ever shout out on the horn or is it just to old school for you?
if you do,don't forget to send me flowers with that wave to 208 kythunder in the grass..
a few pics of my setup and junk..lol
this is my little workshop/shack i built out behind the house several years ago.
this setup here is my daily talker...Magnum S-9 radio with linear setup around 1KW output..
homemade 400 watt linear for any band within 5mhz-30mhz....one of my first complete builds several years ago and use it in my truck.
heres a old school 10 tuber(yes vacuum tubes) complete rebuild and does around 2.5KW output on 10-12 mhz bands but is really tuned for 11 meter CB band as the dead key is only 50 watts and the rest is all modulation swing...i use it sometimes on CH.6..the superbowl channel they call it....
it uses 10 6lq6 horizontal sweep tubes(tv tubes) works well for CB but is not appreciated in the HAM bands..lol
need a tube..i probably have what you need,this is just one box of many..HAHA
now if you never run any of this kind of equipment it's not going to mean anything to ya but if you do,what do you talk on and what kind of power you run?
whats your CB handle ETC.
don't leave HAM radio call numbers on here unless you just want everyone to know who you are and your real adress etc..lol
Ya, back in the day, we had a massive tower with a roater and everthing, but when we moved we had to downsize. We were still able to tune in a Russian radio station one night, it was pretty neet.
that awesome...i am currently up about 70 feet with a 8 element (frost bite) directional antenna with rotor and about 10 feet under that is a small 18 element YAGI WIFI antenna on a 5 watt power amplifier..
my internet goes down i can connect to another location several miles away...i don't use amp much as it's a good way to get the FCC knocking on your door..LOL
I have used both but don't personally use either normally. Haven't used one this decade for example .
yea its not as popular a hobby as it used to be but theres still a pretty decent crowd and is usually a lot more people talking in the winter time...
208 KY thunder in the grass and im on the side....
ice-ice-ice ice cold mr big appletrees just got down...BUMP BUMP
