Ham Radio ECHOLINK STATION: N2DUI-L (Node Number 301334) linked to 2m repeater N2DUI/R on 146.655 MHz in Coral Springs, FL; NW corner of Broward County. Also repeater trustee for N2DUI/R 444.575 MHz linked with N2DUI/R 224.680 MHz for local ham usage in Coral Springs, FL.
In April 2012, after 25 years absence from HF bands, I returned to the airwaves by using a portable station set-up within my QTH. I am running Hustler Mobile Resonator Antennas from the parking spot of my complex with about 60ft Low Loss 400UF coax to my living room window with a Comet through-the-glass mount system.
Inside the apartment coming from my living room window, I feed another 30ft Low Loss 400UF coax to the LDG auto tuner that attaches to the Yaesu FT-950 rig.
I merely change Hustler resonators when I wish to change bands with the rig. I can operate all-modes on 40m to 6m.
