Station

 

We take pride in our recently renovated, multi-acre modern club station atop “Wireless Hill,” adjacent to the Mercer County Airport, which includes HF, VHF, and UHF capabilities for DXing,  contesting, education, message handling, and other activities.

Radios

The primary HF operating position has a TenTec Omni VII and a Kenwood TL-922 Linear Amplifier. The secondary HF operating  position is a full Icom station using an IC-756 Pro 2 with matching IC-2KL 500 watt linear amplifier and IC-AT500 antenna tuner.  A third operating position is dedicated to VHF, UHF, and digital.  A lounge and conference area completes the facility.

Antennas

Our main HF Antennas are a 2 element Yagi for 40 meters (Force 12 Magnum 240N), and an 14 element 20, 15, and 10 meter (Force 12 C-31XR) multi monoband Yagi  turned by an M2 OR2800 rotator atop our primary 100 foot tower.   Our secondary 50 foot tower has a Cushcraft A3S with various VHF/UHF antennas.  Dipoles for 80 and 160 meters are strung between the towers and various supports.
