Album: My Base Rig
These are photos of my base... a Uniden Washington 40 channel SSB unit, 2 Astatic D-104s and a Radio Shack swr/power meter. It's all hooked up to the homemade dipole antenna mounted on the deck of my house.<br /> <br /> I mostly use the black mic with the T-UP9 stand. I'm not sure if it's a "Special" or not, but it seems to work very well.<br /> <br /> I don't talk much on it, but I sandbag quite a bit, mostly on am but lately I've been trying to hear some of you guys on 38 LSB with no luck. I do hear lots of others though. I call out occasionally but haven't had any long-distant contacts yet.<br /> <br /> My dipole has a very good swr across all channels but needs to be mounted much higher. I hope to eventually get a tower & directional antenna but gotta' save some up cash first.
