I want to use my radio on HF bands, so I had to look for a reasonably sized multi-band antenna. I found that the 2 most popular antennas in this area are G5RV and W3DZZ. The former is fed using a ladder-line cable and I didn’t want to mess with it for my first HF […]

I’ve bought a used Weller EC2002 soldering station with LR-21 iron from eBay for 90€, so the days of using non-temperature controlled “soldering gun” is finally over :) I’ll buy a few new tips and a sponge tomorrow.

Nagoya NL-770R

A few pictures about my new dual-band car antenna. I bought it on eBay. More images are here. As you can see, I can bend down the antenna when I’m going into the garage. It works perfectly, I can hear everyone from Tatabánya in Tata (distance: 10-15km) very fine. I even talked with HA1TN Noybi […]

Soul Symphony

That wasn’t me
