Hello Amateur Radio Operators, 

I am thinking about it too, but I wonder what condition it is in?

I used to put them up, take them down and repair them for San Antonio, Texas, Radio Clubs, including MARS.

Hi Bill,

It sounds very tempting but I don't even know what that thing looks like. I will definitely pass the word.

Looking forward to the first meeting....I need help setting up my radio.

The new owners would like to have the Tower removed, and they asked me. I said I would contact other hams in the area and see if there's any interest. They don't want any payment.
 
Would you please give this info to your members and ask them to contact me at gcox.personal@... if they are interested?

I apologize.  

I had planned to attend the training session, however, the legislature in its "wisdom" made a number of changes regulating HOA's that start Sep 1.  I'm President of out HOA and a conference call for tonight was called last night.  We are still on the call and will probably will go on for another hour.  NOT FUN, but I must be on the call.

Hello again everyone

Please go to the link for the hurricane training session tonight and register so the NWS has a good idea of attendance and the starting will be smooth and everyone won't be trying to register before the training starts at 7pm.

This will be a great, informative training session as has been in the past.

Thanks everyone for your attendance and participation. If you know anyone who would benefit from this training, please pass along the link.

David McGuire
 

Thank you Harold for the comments.  I found a couple of 9:1 baluns with one being good for QRP and other other being for 100w.  Both were sold out.  I wrote to the maker to ask if he had a timeframe for new units.

Harold Fleischer
 

A couple of thoughts.

Re R7: SARC has set up an R7 at Field Day on a mast with three ropes as guides staked out on the ground. As to whether your R7 works, an antenna analyzer or vector network analyzer could be used once you have it set up.

Re 15’ antenna. The wire part appears to be pretty standard so it will probably handle 100w. The feed cable looks light, but data exists for most cable if you look up the markings on it. The specified 9:1 Balun should have a power rating if it is commercial. If home brew, the designer should have disclosed the target power rating.

I have a buddipole. The antenna is rated by the manufacturer as 200w. I am using coax rated for over 200w. My limitation is the balun rated for 100w. I don’t have an amplifier so my buddipole variants are good to go with my 100w radios.

Best wishes.

BLUF: anyone available to teach me how to repair/build portable antenna?

I have not used my Cushcraft R7 in over 10 years.  Does it still work?  No idea.  My current apartment will not permit use of an antenna.  I'm thinking of taking my equipment to Canyon Lake for a weekend of ops. 

I found a nice YouTube video that gives a description of a QRP Field Day antenna, but want to know if this design can be modified for 100w use.  If this design (see attachment) can be modified for 100w use it would be much easier to use for portable ops.

The YouTube video is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yH0zKNNGa0s.  Thanks to Kevin KB9RLW!
