- Aeronautical Mobile HF – Weather permitting plans are to run HF from a Piper Arrow for about an hour with my FT-897D & LDG Tuner into the ADF longwire antenna, running SSB Phone @ ~100-watts. I’ll probably target running this (again, weather permitting) between 10AM to 12PM that day.
- Home HF: At home, I plan to run Slow-Scan Television (Analog on 14.230 MHz and Digital PAL\DRM on 14.233 MHz), PSK-31 on 14.233 MHz and I may also run Digital Voice (on 14.236 MHz) on my Yaesu FT-847, running about 600-watts into a ¼ Vertical Antenna. http://no9g.thebrownhouse.org
- Mobile HF: While driving around that day – to/from the airport or in between tasks – I plan to run some HF mobile in my Jeep (SSB Phone and DSTAR DV (14.280 MHz), running my Icom IC-7100 and Little Tarheel II Antenna @ 100-watts.
