Spotlight W9GDH
W9GDH Just a small station. Kenwood TS-2000 feeding an Ameritron AL-80B into PALSTAR AT2K Antenna tuner. Backup Kenwood TS-50. Antennas: all band dipole 80 to 10 meters, Alpha Delta DX-LB Plus 160 to 10 meters, and 40M full wave loop. Use two Kenwood TH-D7Gs for APRS and Skycommand. I'm also set up for emergency backup power with a 5.5KW generator and battery. HF Mobile: Kenwood TS-50 into Little Tarheel II with 56" whip. You will find me on 7268 KHz "68 Group" from 2PM to 3PM and the Freewheelers Net, 3916 KHz from 11:30 PM to 12:30 AM, while mobile to and from work on weekdays (Monday thru Friday).
