VK4WIP Club Station is now back on the air after many years of absence from HF.
The tower project has now been completed and the erection of the 9 Element Log Periodic has taken place. Rigs currently in use at the club station (Supplied by the members for operation) are : Yaesu FT-101Z, Yaesu FT-101E, Yaesu FT-1000D & Yaesu FT-1000MP Mark V. The Rotator is a Yaesu G-1000DXC housed in a custom “cage” with thrust bearing to handle the weight and wind load of the antenna. The club will be purchasing a NEW rig to complete the station in the not to distant future.
We are also on Facebook and the photos of the tower and antenna are viewable here. The Club Station will try to be active most weekends (time permitting) and for those wanting a QSL Card we’re also in the process of designing a Special QSL for Direct & Bureau requests.
We look forward to working you all soon.
