Equipment / 22m beacon antenna
« on: August 08, 2023, 1635 UTC »
I have some 14ga copper I'm going to make a antenna outta of it.. what's the best style of antenna to use for my beacon? I was thinking of just a inverted V and be done.. any other ideas would be great.

nice ok good deal! I want to direct feed it from the transmitter and keep the transmitter enclosure closest to the feed point.

you could 3d print and use sealant or find a outdoor box on amazon with the gasket.

any word on the 50s?

I am looking for something to throw up quick. I just purchased my own 22m transmitter to play around with.

what's a good program to record a show and put in mp3s to play etc.. i think i might just got live and wing it but want to try to record something then broadcast it.

KE9NS PSDR version will allow the 3000 to go 10kHz wide. It will sound clean and flat. The PSDR audio processing will sound OK on music, but it really isn't designed for that. Better to use an external multiband broadcast processor if possible. You can feed it into the Flexwire line level input on the back.

Duty cycle? While the 3000 has good cooling, based on my own experience with digi modes running 40 watts, depending on the band, it will probably not hold up to continuous transmit despite what the specs say. At a 1.2:1 match on 20m, the temp rises to 70c pretty quickly and the fans run full speed during one JT65 cycle. Broadcast program audio would be different but with processing for loudness may behave the same as continuous tones.

I have the ke9ns psdr running. I didnt know i could go 10khz thats nice. I have 1 1.0:1 on the antenna on 6925 0 watt reflect..hy-power antenna company and the 80ocf is what I have.

My 1500 has been tortured at 100% duty cycle AM and SSB at rated output.
Have no clue as to the amplified versions, I use a RM Italy HLA150 at half power(100% duty cycle) into the big box if needed.


i sere 110 watt peaks with 100% drive on AM on 6925.

I was thinking of using my flex 3000 that is mars modd'ed. I am thinking of sticking to Ssb for now maybe am down the road.  I have a inverted V up about 65-70ft. Just finishing up some touches to do on the rest of the station. Anyone have some good tricks for the audio settings?
