The BIG Nebula eXtreme multi-band antenna is nearing installation. In this video, we lay out 2,000 feet (nearly 600m) of copper as the ground. I’m using the biodegradable radial pins from my store here: https://www.m0mcx.co.uk/store/products/biodegradable-ground-radial-pins/. Exciting project. Can’t wait to get on 40m and 80m with this..

2MC ANTI-NET EVERY WEDNESDAY AT 7PM PST
~~~NEXT WEEK WILL BE ON CHANNEL 2~~~
INFO: Channel 2 for the Anti-Nets if this one is down will be over on Nick’s / KN6DAL channel Link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvQ5mDcc4zlgdW10hy3c5Fg
This is not a net in the traditional way and everyone is a visitor. We take check-ins so we can circle back to people and give them a chance to chat. There is a Facebook Group to join under “2MC”.
EchoLink and AllStar was added in the beginning of 2020 to allow people globally to check in and join the fun. Also, we leave the links up all the time. So feel free to key up the repeater anytime.
Primary EchoLink is W6VVR-R and Secondary is WG5EEK-L. You can also use our AllStar Node 51094
Live AllStar/EchoLink website & more: https://WG5EEK.com
A huge thank you to the Vaca Valley Radio Club – W6VVR for the use of the repeater. It’s a great machine sitting on top of Mt. Vaca around 2,800 feet high, about 60 miles East from San Francisco. Link to club’s website: https://w6vvr.net/

I’m often asked what equipment I use to create the videos. The devices include the Panasonic DMC-G7 camera, Panasonic HDC-TM90 video camera, GoPro Hero2 HD camera, Tascam DR-05 audio recorder, Audio-Technica ATR-3350 lapel microphone, Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W560 digital camera, the Kodak Zi-8 video camera, my iPhone 5S. Software used: CyberLink PowerDirector 17 on an HP Gaming Pavilion, also using Smoothdraw 188.8.131.52, FastStone Image Viewer 5.3, FastStone Capture 8.0, Audacity 2.1.1, LibreOffice 184.108.40.206, and Ink2Go 1.7.2. You can see how my studio is set up by viewing https://youtu.be/wFSQ8vtNA5A.
I drew these out and sent them away for waterjet cutting and I am extremely pleased with the result. Perfect for 450 ohm doublets and other 450 hm projects. Enjoy – and take some inspiration! Callum M0MCX #dxcommander #doublet #m0mcx
Since I brought up the subject, lets have a discussion about the FCC proposal to reinstitute fees for ham radio licensing. How to get involved. Also, by popular demand: I present my bug out bag(s). How to pack for a fast escape.
The Icom IC-705 has not been added to the official list of radios supported by WSJT-X. In this video however, I will show you how you can set the radio up to work with WSJT-X and perhaps other digital modes.
As of the date of this video, the latest version of WSJT-X is v2.2.2.
Future releases will no doubt support the IC-705 and when that occurs you will not need to change the CI-V address as per this video however all other settings will still be relevant.
Thanks to Kevin VK4UH on the CI-V setting
