Designing a New Antenna – the DX Commander #RAPIDE

Designing a New Antenna - the DX Commander #RAPIDE

Finally, I have time to tell you about this exciting new economical antenna solution designed for the upper HF bands. This should be a little monster! Ideal as a primary upper HF (30m and above) or to compliment your Yagi system, leaving your low-band antennas perhaps further away on your antenna farm / field. This is going to be my personal "Antenna 2" to compliment my 18m Nebula system. See what you think.. Price to be announced, aiming for £160. Callum, M0MCX.

You can successfully remotely control almost any station for free by using Chrome Remote for the visual – and Discord for 96kHz two-way audio. There are MANY ways of skinning a cat! You might do it a different way? Let us know. Roly ZL1BQD and I discuss his objective to have a remote station by the ocean. Callum, M0MCX. DX Commander

Here’s some fun videos to watch:

We Never Thought We Would pass! Amateur Radio Exam

We Never Thought We Would pass! Amateur Radio Exam

You can do both CB AND Ham Radio. Nothing wrong with either. But you might want to give the exam a blast. It’s easy to do and will expand your horizons with more bands and totally different skip. Prefer operating at night? 40m band actually opens at night when CB closes down mostly. Anyway, food for thought. Mike and I discuss. Cheers, Callum, DX Commander.
