KB5HCD Trimode Houston: HF antenna repaired -back in service

KB5HCD Trimode is fully back in service now that the antenna is repaired. The equipment is upgraded with an Icom 7300 and Dragon and should work better now after I found I had messed up with the filter bandwidths!!
The bands covered are 40-17m using a vertical at 100' AGL

KB5HCD Houston: HF antenna damaged

The antenna is damaged due to metal fatigue, so the Trimode will be low sensitivity & output for the next week. Look for an entry here when it is fully operational again.

KB5HCD Houston - 17m, 20m, 30m added

The scanned frequencies have changed to include 30m, 20m & 17m bands for out of area coverage. Now 80m is no longer scanned.

As the new Trimode station KB5MAC is fully operational in Spring Tx, NVIS coverage is handled by the two local Trimodes W0MAC and KB5MAC. This has allowed KB5HCD to remove 80m and include higher frequencies.

Feedback is most welcome!
