Icom IC 706 Mark II G with a 350 hz CW filter and 100 watts of output power.
The antenna is a dual band hybrid system which consists of:3/4" x 4' stainless steel mast.B&W Hy Q coil tapped for 40 meters (7.180 MHz).The whip on top of the coil is 7' 2" long for a total antenna length of 12' 4".Under the 40 meter coil is a 20 meter resonator which is mounted at a 45 degree angle. The 20 meter resonator is a Hustler 80 meter resonator rewound to resonate on the 20 meter band. This type of system will cover the entire 20 meter band with an SWR of less than 1.5:1.For information on how to modify the Hustler Resonator for either 15 or 20 meters, go to the following web page: Hop Up Your Hustler(Foot note: I always wanted to try 160 meters mobile. I just put the Kenwood TS480 SAT in the car and made a 160 meter resonator. Lately I've been checking into the 1900 group (1900 khz) at 0000Z on Weds. evenings while driving home from the local club's station. I've gotten favorable results.)A matching transformer is located at the base of the antenna to provide a low SWR at the resonant frequencies of the two bands.
