Thanks for visiting this site.
In 1978 I obtained my radio examination and was in the air since that time.
First I was qrv wit 4x 8 el and 1 kW on 144 MHz and 2 x 21 el and 500 watt on 70 cm
Almost every VHF contest I was qrv with one of the contest groups in the Netherlands as PA0GN later PI4GN, Pi4ZI
On the boat the rig is a Yaesu 817 with a 300 watt amplifier, the antenna is a G5RV connected at the top of the main mast, as Horta has a lot of stays, wires and lines you won't see the antenna on the picture. As Horta has a steel hull the grounding is excellent and the G5RV has a great take off.
At this time a don't have a antenna for 6 meter and no power only the 5 watt from the 817, but I am working on that project.
All the best,
