HS0ZGW Tower and Antenna
« on: February 21, 2010, 02:05:15 PM »
Yesterday we installed with the valuable help of Paul HS0ZIN and John HS1CHB and the tower supplier from Chonburi a self supporting 21 m tower with a C3 beam on top of it.
It was marvellous work by the company!

The antenna is working great except for the local QRM which bothers. I can manage to take most out of it with my MFJ Noise cancellor though.
Later I am planning to install a VHF antenna and consider also a 40 m dipole, however the area is limited.

Now I am very happy to be QRV from 20 - 10 m!

Hi Karsten,

ja lokal (Bangkok). It consists of 3 m long segments. They assembled it quickly (at least they were faster than us assembling the beam...).
A VHF Antenna will follow but I was thinking of a collinear, not really a yagi, but let's see.
I still have the annoying RFI from the nearby power line and transformer. Tried a few approaches but nobody likes to be responsible for this so far. It ruins 20 m at night....a shame.
If you need the address of the company, please contact Khun John or I could give you the mobile phone if needed.

Hall o Uwe

I se you made the same mistake as me , First put up the C3 and then I had to take it down and extend it with 2 element for 40 m and also at same time mount 2x 12 elm yagi for 2m.
but it was well worth it.
welcome in the air in Thailand, well QRM I had a Icom 718 at first 59 plus QRM Now on the Kenwood TS940 0 QRM only low background noise

Hi

think it is not the Receiver, but I have terrible issues with neighboring powerlines and there absolutely nobody who can help or taking care of this. As good as the antenna and the tower is, I can't work on some bands (especially 20 m).
So if anybody has some contacts into the PEA, I would appreciate it!!
