I’ve bought a new house and will be moving over end of september. The good news: It has a big, flat roof to put my VHF, UHF and SHF antennas on top of it. The other good news: The 3 story high building itself is about 9 meters in height, but it’s on top of a hill that also is about 11 metes heigh, overlooking the area which is a must-have to be succesvol on microwave bands. So the antennas will be on, lets say, 22 meters above street level.
I guess that means the end of HF for a while since I want to concentrate on the VHF and up bands. The gear is there to work on 6, 4 and 2-meters, 70, 23, 13 and 6 cm (and RX on 9 and 3cm). I have to build a transverter for the 9cm and 3cm band. Power is minimal, but RF-pallets and ex UMTS/3G network gear will do that for you. I’ve already collected 30 and 90 Watts 2140 MHz modules that can easily be converted to 2300 MHz.
Update: Moved over end of September. New panorama photo’s taken during a roof inspection.
