Longwire Antenna WB8ZTP on 23/1/17
Latest news on my Long / Random Wire Antenna projects. My favorite evening net changed to 80 meters for the Winter months so I threw up a 84’ Long / Random Wire antenna and a ground wire the other day while it was warm in Central Ohio so I could get on the net. It’s hooked to my LDG RU 4:1 Unun, the LDG AT-897 and my Yaesu FT-897 rig. It worked great checking in on the net, I’m sold! Keep this topic alive with your comments and questions. 73, Mark – WB8ZTP

KD2JRI - I forgot to mention I just bought a Celestron 9.25". I would love to pick your mind on that subject. Go to my page to get my email address. 73, Mark WB8ZTP

I like the Yaesu-897 but it’s been upgraded to the FT-991. HF is 160-6 Meter and it has a built in antenna tuner. Also covers the VHF 2 Meter / 70 cm bands. I have a Cushcraft R8 Vertical antenna which does a great job. Check out my page (WB8ZTP) for the run down on my shack and equipment. If you have any more questions just find my email address on the page and send me a message. 73, Mark WB8ZTP

My favorite net, The Brothers Net, on Saturday at 7PM EPT, 2300Z in the summer months on 7.192 LSB features any questions on antennas by the NCS (Net Control Station). Check it out. Each NCS has a different topic Monday – Saturday. It’s a great group of guys and girls! 73, WB8ZTP

Come on fall and get those leaves off the trees so I can get a long wire into the woods! 73, Mark WB8ZTP
