Rob on 04/08/2015 on his Maiden outing Pedestrian Mobile in mid winter in his snow suit & boot's, I have not finished the setup yet. I worked Peter G2YT for about 30 + min while I was walking around the 50 acares on 50 watts with 5/2 signal I went down to 5 watts and received 4/1 report, Peter said he had never heard a Pedestrian mobile so far inland the signal was so steddy Peter was 5/9 all the time. I was going to build a trolly for Pedestrian mobile, but being out in the country with the rough terain the Bicycle cart is ideal with the 20 inch wheels they go over all the rough land and, PLUS I have had it laying around, all I had to do is put a long handle on.

Thank you for looking me up on my website.


I have been active on the amateur bands for over 31 years. My main

interest has been the 6-meter band. Since moving to my new location 90 km

north of Melbourne. It is a perfect radio location, I an on 50acres of rural

land UP 800mts elevation with no noise, the only problem that I can find

is I hear most every station that calls but many can't hear me but It looks

like that I will have to put up with It Ha Ha! I am now active on 10

meters SSB, My equipment is ICOM IC-746 + Amp running 400 watts with a

home brew 7 element 13 meter boom mono band yagi, I will be stacking
 
another one the only trouble I can only get 1/2 wave spacing and I will be using
 
Array Solutions stack matching unit so I can use the top or the bottom one or both.
 


My Antenna's for the Amateur bands.

144Mhz 4 x 10 element yagi stack with Elevation control.

432Mhz 4 x 19 element yagi stack
with Elevation control.

 
1296Mhz 4 x 49 element yagi stack with Elevation control.
 
2 Meter Diameter Dish with Elevation control.

50Mhz antenna is 2 x 7-element yagi's 9.4Mts long boom Stack at 5/8 wave part.

50Mhz antenna 10 element 13Mts long boom.

10Mhz antenna is 3 element on 11.7 meter boom. Mono band yagi 
 
14Mhz antenna is 4 element on 10-meter boom. Mono band yagi

18Mhz antenna is 5 element on 13-meter boom. Mono band yagi

21Mhz antenna is 5 element on 10.5-meter boom mono band yagi

24Mhz antenna is 5 element on 9-meter boom. Mono band yagi

28Mhz antenna is 7-element 14 meter long boom mono band yagi
 
7Mhz antenna is 1/4 wave vertical with 12 1/4 wave radials

3.8Mhz is 1/4 wave Top Loaded vertical
 
75 Meter Band Inverted V
 
160 meters 1/4 wave top loaded with 87 radials 2.5 Kms of copper wire in radials under ground (as seen in photo) 

160-meter band 1/2 wave InvertV.


I have plans on making a 3 el full size yagi on 40 meters. I am active on

most modes' SSB, CW, SSTV, PSK, RTTY, JT65, WSPR and anything that

comes a long. I am always looking for other Ham to make skeds! Best 73S
