Just to make it just a little more interesting…
The C6 trip will be 100% using homebrew kit only the laptop will have been bought.
Even the PSU is homebrew 🙂
2el on 80m, Supports are two 12m poles from Spiderbeam, with top capacity hats. Directed endfire towards UK/EU. Wires all new.
4-square on 40m, Four 10m traveling poles from SOTABeams will support the radiators, radials all new wires from CPC. Using a TK5EP based hybrid controller, same as used elsewhere, this time M1GEO made me up a QRP PCB and much lighter so will be trying that instead of the S2JW version.
VDA on 20m, 12m pole, Tesco chopping board and parts from two 4m poles. See http://www.f4bkv.net/index.phpfor details how to build one. TX6G David Aslin G3WGN also has excellent designs. There is a 1/2 wavelength version out there too… http://www.dxing.eu/vda.html
GP’s 15m and 10m (Not expecting much if anything on 15m and 10m)
Feed is NEW Aircell-5 with 75ohm webpro 100 between the phased antennas.
Taking coax stubs for 40m and 20m (G4BWP discussions and corrections) made from coax I picked up from SM7UCZ a while back
W3NGN based BPF (but qrp versions) between the TRX and antenna
I’ll use an SO2R arduino controller not really for running SO2R but to switch between the antennas.
Rigs will be ATS-3B and K2 both I built.
SDR RX as well. Softrock “Lite + USB Xtall” V9.0 Si570
I expect will have WSPR and/or CW beacon QCX on 30m from G0UPL https://qrp-labs.com/qcx.html
(I have KX3 which I ‘built’ but they don’t really fall into the hombrew category.)
