Operations this weekend are taking place thanks to this impressive vertical.
I don’t have a permanent HF antenna set up at the moment and I wanted a weekend of operating so I threw together this Inverted V.
I was itching to get on the air with my new FT-857 so I made up a quick and dirty set of simple interface leads.
The FT-857 has a data port on the back and a digital mode that is selectable from the menu system. It also has a data port VOX function so any audio being presented on the data port will activate the TX.
