2014-HI8RD-Team Member of Saona Island Dxpedition

Miembro del Equipo HI2DX de la Expedicion Saona 2014

PARTICIPATION DURING SEP-OCT 2016
ON RECENT URE SPANISH CONTEST

Contests are fun and challenging and they allways leave a learning experience from different points of view:
They either help you to enhanse your capabilities, skills, and improve your station.  It is hard to see someone with a wire and 100 watts can bit you having a large array and a big amp.  Sometimes its a matter of getting things donde properly.

During this contest I had to do some things, which I probabbly would not pay attention if it was not becase of the contest.   I point just couple of examples:   

   
 I noticed a loose connection on my hexbeam antenna.  On 17 meters, the  feed point for the band was loose. No other choice but to bring it down to make the correction. 

Another benefit of these activities is that it help in the development of comanionship and fellowship.

Even on a rainy day, there was no other choice but to bring my 80 meters dipole down to adjust the lenght and  perhaps correct a very high SWR on the botton portion of the band. 

This is Guillermo Schrils HI8CSS who operates mostly on digi modes. During the contest he took the time to assist me on setting up the equipment and software to operate ditital modes. 

Thank you Guillermo  

I never took the time to learn how to operate the Decoder on my TS-990.
This radio has the builtin decoder so you can Tx & Rx PSK & FSK & RTTY without using a computer and interface. I did my first contact on RTTY during URE contest.
After all it pays the efforts and all the fun of chassing stations for a contest. I needed to improve my station during the contest and at the end I received a BONUS gratification of getting the HIGHEST SCORE from DOMINICAN REPUBLIC and obtained three award certificates or DIPLOMA from URE

Audio Gear 

UPDATED:  NOVEMBER 2016

During my years of  ham radio operation, I have experimented with differents area of the hobby.  One thing I enjoy is to listen to a good fidelity station, not neccesary a Voodu audio or extended super wide over 3k or ESSB.  After a while playing audio setups, I must admit it is all in people taste and preference.  What for some people is a good fidelity audio, for other it could be muffle, bassy sound.  At the end its all about experimenting as the ham radio spirit.

I have tried different setups, combinations and configurations, but at the end I prefer a crispy clear audio with some moderated base sound with good inteligibilty which is the most important.

Most new transceivers nowday come with filters, Equalization and capabilty to achieve those preferences which makes it easier and no need to add so many devices in the audio chain. 

In my humble opinion it is very sensitive and I suggest fellows audio fans to be cautious on asking for audio report, since not all hams are equiped to receive a over the normal 2.8-3k wide, and besides some others might give a sincere report based on what they are able to hear. Rememer that a great percentage of operators will be receiving you on a normal radio.  Before you go crazy disconecting and making serius changes on your equipment setup, try to get someone you know and can trust to make a recording and send you a sample report over email or any other mean of your transmition. That way would be able to listen and evaluate yourself what type of audio you are really producing. Remember we are not broadcasing station but Amateur Radio Operators.

AUDIOTECNICA AT-4040 ELECTROVOICE RE-27 N/D HEIL PR-781
The AT-4040 was a special gift by good friend Ricardo W1NX

I allways wanted to try an EV microphone, since they are very well know in the broadcasting field, and going thru the different models available, I decide to try the RE27 N/D which to my understanding has very suitable characteristics for amateur radio use. 

 
   
 
HEIL PRO ELITE 6
 
 

I'm not a contester, but sometimes I do contests and dx hunting, for that type of operation there is nothing like a hand free microphone.  Heil headset comes very handy for such operation special ocasions.

APHEX 230
I have used many devices experimenting with audio enhancement; I tried adding eqs, preamps, compresors and mixers, both digital and analog. Many makes and brands: Behringer, W2IHY, Bellari, DBX, Shure, and others, after a while playing with audio, decided to keep a simple setup with just to units: the Aphex  Master Voice Channel 230 and the dbx 286s.

but you will find me mostly at night on 40 meters which is one of my favorites bands

See you on the air
