The current QRA does not allow the erection of antennas outside, radio activity is limited.

The main transceiver is an FT891 Yaesu (5 to 100 w) with an indoor magnetic loop antenna 80 cm in diameter. Its frame is made of copper wire, is covered with copper sheets and fitted with a motorized vacuum CV and controlled via the coaxial.



And for CW, a home made Sideswiper key : A sensitive touch key circuit (P3W cwtouchkeyer) with a small teaspoon as paddle ;-)


This position of the paddle allows the wrist to be placed vertically, natural position when the arm is folded. Handling in sideswiper is effected by rotation of the wrist. Interesting experience.
