DL3TU - station details
Elecraft K3: primary radio
Elecraft KX3: when working QRP or portable
LNR Precision - Mountain Topper Radio 3 Band: when working portable
Ten-Tec Titan 425 with 2 x 3CX800A7. An awesome PA, provides more than 1.5 kW CW.
Vertical for 14, 21 and 28 MHz
Trap dipole for the WARC bands
3- Element Yagi (modified TV- Antenna) for 50 MHz
These antennas are located on the flat roof, approx. 15m above ground (338 m A.S.L.)
End- fed half wave- dipole for 7 MHz, 15m above ground. The loop at the far end is part of an artwork of my neighbour Friedrich who kindly offered his balcony as an anchor point for my wire.
End- fed half wave- dipole for 3.5 MHz, 15m above ground ending in one of the trees some 50 metres away.
The same wire is used on 1.8 MHz together with a large steel structure belonging to the building. Most closely this formation can be considered to be something similar to a half sloper. Due to the good ground conductivity it is working well for DX.
RX- Loop for 1.8 MHz, 15m above ground on the flat roof. Currently fixed direction 120°/ 300°.
The world seen from my QTH:
Less than optimal horizon: The hill behind the house prevents low take off angles from east to southwest. Towards NA and JA the terrain is rather flat.
