Calibrate tuner LDG AT-11MP

We present you a film about the tuning of the node of the meter of the forward and reverse power in the tuner LDG AT-11MP.
The tuner is provided by UT3UIQ.
The second half of the film is dedicated to radio amateurs for general development and understanding of the losses in the transformation in the tuner.

Antenna 431,5MHz to work through repeaters

There was a task to develop a compact antenna with a boom length of no more than 2 meters, in the range of 70cm to work through the repeater spacing in frequency -7.6 MHz.
Terms on the line between reporter and repeater 70km and overlap on the terrain.

IARU Field Day 2016 July

We offer you view a film about the field day held in the framework of competitions “Karpatian dali” and “IARU Field Day” on VHF and UHF bands.
Working in conditions of mountains as well as the weather that presents the test, but still can not stop us.

Memorial contest “Chalapko” UT5EU 2016

We offer you view a movie on carrying out the contest.
We talk about our setups and antennas built project Martin DK7ZB.

HamFest Suvid 05.2016

“The match will take place in any weather” – the motto was present Suvid HAMFest. And despite the fact that all Saturday drizzling rain, the festival was a success. After all, our brother – ham not scare such trifles. Proper clothing and positive attitude predetermined the success of the event.

Contest (Spring 2016)

Kiev Central Radio is video sketches about the preparation and participation of the collective radio UT4UWE (UW4U) in three competitions –
“VHF spring contest UT0YO” and “IARU region 1 2nd tour”.
In our view, this little clip is well conveys the atmosphere and the spirit of amateur competition on VHF.
All participants of the competition thanks and see you in the next round.

Overview duplexer COMET CF-4160


Each radio amateur builds the setup to suit your individual preferences and in view of the plurality of features.
Since VHF costs antenna-feeder farm often superior to all other costs, the majority of radio amateurs trying even for something to save.
In this case, the work on the dual-band (VHF/UHF) antenna powered by a single feeder looks like a reasonable solution. However, after a while the active radio amateur is required to face the question: “The upper range of binder and less than the maximum range is less than … Why..?”
There are several reasons.
The first (but not the main) – feeder loss at more than 70cm to 2m.
The second reason, as a consequence of the first – is technically much more difficult to build a high-performance setup, which means that such setups are much smaller in comparison to the 2nd setup.
And the third important reason – the antenna gain at the third harmonic is less than the fundamental frequency.
In addition to the above, the important role played by a number of other factors – it is distorted directional pattern, gain/matching for the third harmonic is usually higher than the frequency of the desired.
As a result of such “discoveries”, many are disappointed in the UHF band and completely cease to work in it.
But to no avail!
For those wishing to improve their setup and do not spend money on another feeder and its installation have an inexpensive but highly effective solution to the problem – the duplexer.

Today we consider the duplexer from Comet CF-4160.

It is believed that such devices are ineffective or even harmful because many losses in them.
Let’s take a measurement in a wide frequency band from 50 to 800 MHz:

The following screenshot I increased the top shelf for more details.

Separately measuring on the port 1.3 – 170 MHz
Port 350 – 540 MHz is loaded 50 Ohm
